Time to leave Port Lincoln today – after 9 days it was time to go. We had a big drive ahead of us, with Ceduna being our preferred end point at the end of the day, and the official start of the Nullarbor.

We stayed at the Big 4 Ceduna where the lady at reception was from Zimbabwe and had also gone to Townshend Girls School in Bulawayo. It’s a small world! We weren’t expecting it but we had a really great time at this caravan park – we had dinner in the camp kitchen, watched an episode of ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’, did 3 loads of washing and met a lovely elderly couple who were driving anti-clockwise around Australia. They developed a love of caravanning from their parents, who were permanently living and travelling out on the road. They gave us some great tips on what to do and see in northern WA.

The next morning before setting off on our trip across the Nullarbor, we visited the Fisheries Factories in Thevenard, one of the outer suburbs of Ceduna, and bought some frozen whiting and flathead from Big Baldy’s. We haven’t tried it yet but we are looking forward to it on a day when we have time to defrost them before dinner!
