Now that the weather is getting colder I think we can all agree it’s getting harder and harder to leave the couch where it’s cosy and comfortable.

But when you’ve exhausted all decent Netflix options and you’re getting restless, here on the Eyre Peninsula we’ve got a great solution for your boredom – a road trip!

The Eyre Peninsula’s West Coast not only has beauty of its own but it leads into the vast and wondrous Nullarbor Plain. While experiencing the Nullarbor in its entirety requires a significant amount of time it is possible to see some of its highlights in a shorter road trip.

One of the more spectacular natural wonders on the South Australian side of the Nullarbor is Head of Bight, which serves as a whale nursery as well as a section of the longest stretch of cliffs in the world! With the promise of some spectacular views we packed up the car and hit the road.

Clocking in at just over 7 hours driving from Port Lincoln to Head of Bight, we broke up the trip by camping the night at the picturesque Tractor Beach Campground just outside of Streaky Bay.

If you’d like to visit and want to stay a bit closer to Head of Bight you can either set up base in the larger coastal town of Ceduna which is about a 3.5 hour drive away, or there are a number of smaller towns and camping spots closer in proximity.

After a few sightseeing stops along the way, we arrived at Head of Bight ready to take in the views.
