What is the Nullarbor?

Have you ever driven across the Nullarbor? No? What is the Nullarbor?

Ok, in Latin Nullarbor means no trees, and in Oz along the south coast is a stretch of land void of trees. Dead straight roads the mirage in the heat off into nothing, seeming to disappear into the sky. When driving across it your main companions are the giant road trains, sometimes 50m long with 2 to 3 carriages they are the kings of the road.

In this picture I’ve attempted to capture the size and power of a road train and to roared past me (it was pretty scary) and the beauty of the sunset over the Nullarbor.
