Come and explore the world's largest semi-arid karst (cave) landscapes at the Nullarbor National Park and Regional Reserve. Most of the park's landscape is flat except where the surface has collapsed into sinkholes revealing large underground caverns.

Where the vast landscape meets the sea at Bunda Cliffs you can enjoy views spanning the coastline, while in the adjoining Far West Coast Marine Park you may get a chance to spot a southern right whale that comes to the area to breed in winter. The Head of the Bight Visitors Centre, located to the east, outside of the park, offers a viewing platform from which to view whales and their calves between mid-May and late October.

The park contains many diverse species of flora and fauna, including the southern hairy-nosed wombat, dingos, and many species of birds. Despite its flat and reputedly featureless landscape, the Nullarbor offers the intrepid and patient visitor unparalleled serenity and a sense of remote beauty and isolation which is rare.

This old homestead is now owned by national parks and you are allowed to stay in the buildings.  The old cars you'll find around the homestead have broken down and left behind over the years.  It is a 7km drive off the highway on the unsealed road.
