Welcome to Norseman to Eucla
Balladonia to Cocklebiddy is around 210km. The first 160km to Caiguna includes Australia's longest stretch of straight road (145km), ending at Caiguna's John Eyre Motel.
Birds Australia's Eyre Bird Observatory is in the isolated 1897 former Eyre Telegraph Station, 50km south of Cocklebiddy. Book ahead for accommodation. Day visitors are welcome, but the last 10km are soft sand and 4WD accessible only; 2WD travellers who want to stay can arrange pick-up with the wardens. There's no camping.
At Madura, 91km east of Cocklebiddy and near the spectacular Hampton Tablelands, the Madura Pass Oasis Inn has a very welcome pool.
In Mundrabilla, 116km further east, the Mundrabilla Motel Hotel has cheaper fuel prices than roadhouses further west.
Just before the SA border is Eucla, surrounded by stunning sand dunes and pristine beaches. Visit the atmospheric ruins of the 1877 telegraph station, 5km south of town and gradually being engulfed by the dunes; the remains of the old jetty are a 15-minute walk beyond. The Eucla Motor Hotel has good camping and spacious rooms.
