We travelled to WA, towing our caravan, and went to a place I had wanted to see ever since I first heard about it at primary school - Cape Leuwin, Australia's south-western exremity. We went down to the lighthouse, and walked to the point on the beach where there was a sign saying 'Southern Ocean that way, and Indian Ocean this way' Fascinating! Then we strolled back to our car. When we got to the car, there was a young couple (honeymooners, it turns out) looking at our Victorian number plates. The girl said "Did you really drive over from Victoria?!!" When we said "yes", she turned to her husband and said "Did you hear that? All the way from Victoria!"
We couldn't help smiling. Driving over from Victoria was the longest trip we had taken at that time, but it was not really a risky venture. The Eyre Highway across the Nullarbor is an excellent sealed road all the way, and service stations are no further apart than 190km. And you see another car or truck at least every 20 minutes or so.
