Eyre Bird Obs is an awesome place to visit. It is well worth the drive, even more so if in your own 4WD.

The caretakers do 3 month shifts and are informative people that are full of all sorts of info. Just remember to ring first.

The nearest town is Norseman, 437 km west of Cocklebiddy Roadhouse, 1200 km from Perth. Eyre is 50 km south of Cocklebiddy.

The last 9 km is 4WD access only across sand dunes. (It is recommended that tyres be deflated to about 20 psi to prevent damage to the track).

It is well worth making the time to take the 'back road' to Madura. The area has several ruins of homesteads, wells and dams. Burnabbie Ruins gives some idea of the hardships endured by the early homesteaders. Just remember to let someone know of your plans and ring when you arrive at Madura.
