Artist's Description

One of the great adventures left to man is driving the Eyre Highway from Norseman (Western Australia) to Port Augusta (South Australia) a distance of around 1600 kms (1000 miles) The road was finally sealed in the late 1970’s so the going is comparatively easy, with roadhouses every 150/200 kms and the town of Ceduna some 400kms or so before the eastern end. The name comes from the Latin Nulla (No) and Arbor (Trees).
A major attraction once you get past Eucla travelling east are the magnificent 80/90 foot high cliffs (the Bunda cliffs) which stretch for several hundreds of kms. Several viewpoints are conveniently provided, most of which are barely 500 metres off the highway and between June and October you will almost certainly see many Southern Right Whales resting up in the Southern Ocean below you.
On the morning that I took this particular photo (I have taken scores at different times) we had driven some 100 kms from the caravan park at Border Village and pulled into one of these cliff top parking areas for Betty to cook up a breakfast, which we took outside and ate in absolute solitude before taking a stroll along the edge (but not too close).
The morning sun gave the cliffs a wonderful colour, as this photo shows, and when we finally tore ourselves away to continue our long journey we felt we had been privileged
