To cross from the east to the west of Australia the common route to the South crosses the remote Nullarbor plains, a treeless high plain which impresses with a lot of numbers: For several hundred km the road leads through this neverchanging landscape, going straight on without the smallest bend for 160 km and leading along the limestone cliffs which tower 90 m over the ocean.

German version:
Der Weg von Ost nach West im Sueden Australiens fuehrt unweigerlich ueber die abgelegene Nullarbor, eine baumlose Karsthochebene, die mit grossen Zahlen nur so um sich wirft. Uber mehrere hundert Kilometer faehrt man durch diese gleichbleibende Landschaft. 200 Meter lang fallen Kalksteinklippen 90 Meter tief zum Meer ab, waehrend man 160 km ohne den Hauch einer Kurve geradeaus faehrt.
