My post about the Round Australia Race and Rally reminded me about my own voyage across the Great Australian Bight some years ago.
This photo was taken on our way across the Nullabor Plain to Perth. I’m glad to say that our delivery trip, which included a stop-over in Esperance to replace a lost mast, kept us well clear of these terrifying cliffs. There is no break in them for hundreds of miles.
I must restate my admiration for the skill and courage of Captain Matthew Flinders, who charted this coastline in 1802.
