Nullarbor Plains Journey - Eyre Highway

 South Australia / Western Australia

 

The Nullarbor National Park and Regional Reserve covers 2,873,000 hectares and protects part of the world's largest semi-arid karst (caves) landscapes. The Nullarbor Plain (Nullus Arbor meaning no trees) extends north from the Eyre Highway up to the Transcontinental Railway Line and west in Western Australia. This area supports an extensive network of dolines (sinkholes), blowholes, caves and underground caverns, which have been created over thousands of years by water dissolving and eroding the layers of limestone. The southern boundary of the park, where the Nullarbor meets the Southern Ocean, is one of the most distinctive features of the park. Eighty metre high cliffs stretch for 200 kilometres along this unique coastline providing spectacular views. Viewing areas off the Eyre Highway provide you with access to cliffs, however extreme caution should be used when approaching unstable cliff edges. During May to October, Southern Right Whales gather at the head of bight in this area to give birth. At times up to 80 whales (including newborn calves) may be seen from the viewing areas provided.

Two-tone Twins


If there was just one man and one woman at the beginning then where

did all the ‘races’ come from, with their ‘different skin colours’?

These two girls, born to the same mother and father, prove that

it is simply a matter of genetics—with the right genes, all

the different complexions can appear in one generation.

"For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a

righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God

demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much

more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him."

( * Jesus )   Letter to the Romans  ch.5  vs.6-9.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
