The vast Nullarbor Plain is the world’s largest limestone karst landscape covering an area of 270,000 square km, extending 2,000 km between Norseman and Ceduna. Two thirds of the Nullarbor is within Western Australia and one third is in South Australia.

The spectacular Bunda Cliffs and the Great Australian Bight border the area to the south and the northern border is the Great Victoria Desert.

The name Nullarbor derives from “no trees”, but the plain is covered with bluebush and saltbush plants, hardy shrubs that are drought-resistant and salt-tolerant. The outer edges of the Nullarbor house open woodlands of Myall acacias.

The 1984 Biological Survey of the Nullarbor identified:

– 794 vascular plant species
– 56 mammals – with one of Australia’s largest populations of southern hairy-nosed wombats
– 249 bird species – including the endemic Nullarbor Quail and Nareth Blue Bonnet
– 86 reptile species and 1 frog – Within the study areas a large number of new records and range extensions were recorded

Two guys, one old, one young, are pushing their carts around Wal-Mart when they collide.
The old guy says to the young guy, “Sorry about that. I’m looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going.”
The young guy says, “That’s okay, I’m looking for my wife, too! Where is that woman? I’ve been up and down every aisle.  Man!
The old guy says, “Well, maybe I can help you find her, what does she look like?”
The young guy says,“She’s 27 yrs. old, tall, with red hair and blue eyes, has long legs, is wearing short shorts, is buxom and wearing no bra. What does your wife look like?’
The old guy says, “Doesn’t matter— let’s look for yours.”
