The Great Australian Bight

While the Nullarbor Plain borders much of the length of the Bight's coastline The Great Australian Bight or The Edge of Australia as we call it, is the longest continuous cliff coastline in the Southern Hemisphere. This is a place that takes our breath away every single time we stop there and watching passengers experience this for the first time is one of the best things about doing we what do.

What does The Great Australian Bight mean?  Great – large, magnificent, epic.  Australian – part of this great big amazing country we call home, Terra Australis. Bight – in nautical terms, a large open bay.  Large as in 1160kms running from Cape Carnot in South Australia to Cape Pasley in Western Australia.

The bight came into existence when Gondwana broke apart and separated Antarctica from Australia around 50 million years ago.  The coastline of the Great Australian Bight is characterised by cliff faces (up to 60 metres or 200 feet high), surfing beaches and rock platforms, ideal for whale-watching.

Hundreds of Southern Right Whales splash around in the coastal waters between May and October and we offer a 3 day Whale Watching Tour from Adelaide during this time. You can even take a scenic flight from the Nullarbor Roadhouse over the Great Australian Bight Marine Park which will give you another perspective of this incredible wilderness area.

You can experience the extraordinary landscapes, wildlife and culture on our Great Australian Wilderness Journey which travellers from Adelaide to Perth or Perth to Adelaide.
