Taking off on the Nullarbor Plain
Filling up at Ivy Tank
Onwards to WA
Finding our roots in Bridgetown
Beginning the long journey back
Pining for gold
From Perth we headed north east to Kalgoorlie, where Paddy Hannan discovered gold in 1893. Although I kept a keen eye on the ground, looking for anything that glistened, I wasn’t as lucky as Paddy.
Even though the Eyre Highway is now all sealed and the trip is an easier 2-two day journey with many more comfortable stops, the boundless adventure that lies in the southern coast of our great country will always hold memories for any and all road trippers.
