Where I stayed
Madura Oasis Resort
Another long day travelling the Nullarbor. Again a stop at a Roadhouse. Thought we might camp out at the free spots but most fairly unexciting so opted for the little extra comfort of power and a toilet. These places certainly are only basic but camping out has even less!!!
After Balladonia we encounter the 90 mile straight. That is 146 km without a bend in the road. Not exactly exciting driving.
We do encounter some nice roadside stops compete with some very nice wild flowers.
The entry to Madura is surprising
Madura considers itself a resort with reasonable accommodation and what looks like a good restaurant. The caravan park is basic, but has fireplaces which we use to good effect.
It has hot and cold artesian water in the laundry you can use for washing up. Conserving our scarce supplies in the caravan. There is no phone/internet reception, but has TV.
We do pre-dinner drinks by the fire with a couple from Ouyen (Victoria). They are sleeping in the back of a small farm truck, not much bigger than a ute.
