Nullarbor

The Nullarbor Plain stretches for 1,100 Km across the South Australia and Western Australia borders and is the world’s largest single exposure of limestone bedrock. The landscape vegetation is ‘almost’ treeless (hence null – arbor), instead it displays low growing saltbush and bluebush scrub.

Nullarbor was named by surveyor, E A Delisser in 1866.
