    Completed itinerary!!

    All six weeks laid out in quite a lot of detail. http://www.wanderingwillow.online/explore-nullarbor
    This can be altered, added to as we see fit - but we need to have a general idea of what we're doing and where we're going.

    If you can't do all six weeks - please consider joining us for the first 10 days to Ceduna before turning around and returning to Melbourne.

    Would love to have lots of VWs along for the ride [​IMG]:D

    Sounds like an awesome trip.

    And to go that far just to go to Fairbridge is so totally worthwhile. Should I assume you know about getting in touch with the right people to ensure you will be camped in kombiville for Fairbridge ?

    Will maybe catch up somewhere around the day to Wallaroo and tell some tales about the four crossings that the Mushpit has done. I might know of a few good secret campsites ........

    Ten km west of Cocklebiddy there is a track to the north next to a parking bay. You can see it if you zoom your map in. Its about 10km of corrugated dusty track but the end result is a hole in the ground called Cocklebiddy Cave.
    The climb down is about 45 degrees of rock/boulder hopping. The lake at the bottom is spectacular and bloody cold (read invigorating!).
    At Calca on Eyre Peninsula take the turn down the Point Labatt. These are the highest Cliffs on the Peninsula and there is an Australian Sealion colony that you can view from the lookout.
    Deviate down to Baird bay as well. If you have time to do the swim with the sealions tour there then go for it. It is amazing. and make sure you stop at Murphys Haystacks too.
    Wish we could come with you.

    MMMMMMM...............Oh well, after gearbox fix drove back east in quiet air-conditioned armchair comfort. :cool:...... thanks to Subaru power ! :p

    Actually the trip worked out well, managed to grab the last new high speed ring and pinion (NH) from GoWesty, now the T3 is a real highway cruiser
