Hi folks, we dawdled across to the west last week following some of Ron Moon's book - Across the Bight and Nullarbor. This made an otherwise fast but boring trip into a much more interesting series of side treks. Eucla has had 60mm of rain in the last 5 weeks so is as green as. Bunda Cliffs track would be the highlight.
Ceduna ULP 136 cpl, diesel 130, LPG 80
Nullarbor 175, 175, 119
Eucla 161, 161,108
Mundrabilla 161, 161, no gas
Madura 172, 172, 118
Caiguna 175 ish with gas 115
Balladonia 175 ish with gas 123
Norseman 142, 142, 83
Hyden 138, 138 at BP and gas at Liberty is 99 but is out of order for 2 weeks!.. W

Hi Warrie , did the same thing Jan - Feb , are the themed tree's still there IE " The Knicker Tree " Shoe Tree " Bra Tree " and Kitchen Tree along with the others ?
Did Twilight Cove South of Cocklebiddy and was hoping to do the track from Mundrabilla to Eucla via Wileura and Tookana Rock holes and Abrakurrie Cave but the track is now closed , maybe it got to much traffic when Kim and Peter Wherrett wrote it up in " Explore Australia by 4wd " I dont blame the landholders for shutting it down if it was from the garbage left by travellers ! Balladonia to Israelite Bay was good ( with a break to climb Mt Ragged ) . Cocklebiddy Cave was also closed !
Can be a great drive if you want it to be !

Hi Ken, the trees are still there and to be fair to the Liberty servo the gas is now back on - but still overpriced. As for garbage, there's too much about! take Caiguna blowhole - just 5k's west of town. It's putrid with toilet paper and spoils the whole atmosphere. You can't burn it or bash it but it can certainly be buried. Humans need a pooper scooper for their own use!!!
We did mainly the tracks at the eastern end which ended up being the ones closer to the tar when we'd had enough of the rough stuff. South of Fowlers Bay and on to Mexican Hat were very off road van friendly... W
