We haven’t been given the green light yet to go caravan or camping in South Australia, and when we do it will at first, be only within the state. I know plenty of people are itching to head away somewhere…anywhere, for a change of scenery. And perhaps like me, you’re sick of hearing about ‘a new normal’, ‘unprecedented’, ‘social distancing’, ‘isolation’ and every other term we’ve heard too often over the past few months. That’s not to say we don’t still follow every bit of advice from the health professionals (they are doing a brilliant job in Australia) but a break from the doom and gloom is going to be very welcome.
On Saturday I participated in an event to highlight a cause that I strongly believe in. It was a National day of protest called ‘Fight for The Bight’ and was an environmental protest against the Norwegian company Equinor and their plan to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight.
A much anticipated part of the journey for me has been crossing the Nullarbor. It was with a little trepidation that we set off on this next step, it seems like such a leap into the unknown. I thought it would be quiet barren and possibly a boring stretch of road. How wrong I was. There is so much of interest on the way and plenty of places to stop and rest to have a break when needed. Take every opportunity to go to the lookouts along the Bunda Cliffs. You won’t be disappointed.
