skies of the desert plain. No photograph or movie could ever do
justice to this night sky spectacular. This is something you can

which struggled and lost in its battle against the ever encroaching
desert sands, the reality of the Nullarbor really hits you! We stop

homesteads, once used as a service station on the old Eyre Highway
just over the South Australian boarder and get prepared to be bedazzled
by one of natures greatest show in the sky again. (BLD)
