THE NULLARBOR NYMPH
Favorite thing: Who was the Nullarbor Nymph?
In 1971, reports and photographs emerged of a half-naked blonde girl who had gone wild and lived and ran with the kangaroos. Photographers and News groups came from around the world to get the story and photos of the woman who was known as the "Nullarbor Nymph".
The story turned out to be a hoax cooked up by the residents of Eucla. It was one way to make the population swell to over 100 people and to put Eucla on the map!
Today, the new Eucla Motor Hotel has her on the side of their building.
I might add, this is the best looking accommodation on the whole of the Nullarbor. There are views of the Great Australian bight, a restaurant, with take away food also available. The accommodation ranges from budget share facility rooms to standard and deluxe studio motel rooms.
A caravan park with camping facilities is also located adjacent to the motel.

Favorite thing: When crossing the Nullarbor, keep in mind it's a long way between pit stops - so make sure you carry plenty of water and oil, spare tyre etc just in case. Also be careful of Australian fauna - kangaroos etc. Try not to travel at night as that's the time you're most likely to run into a roo bounding across the road in front of you. Believe me, it's not nice running into one of them as you'll right the car off.
A huge Dog Fence!!!??
Favorite thing: Australia has the longest Dog Fence, used to keep the dingos away from the sheep.
Favorite thing: Just near Eucla is the border of SA/WA, and yep, we had to stick our feet in both states lol!!!!
