Many people said that crossing the Nullarbor Plains was boring as there is nothing to see or do. Well, they’re wrong!

There’s plenty to do but sometimes doing nothing except looking up into the dark night sky to see how many stars you can see is the best and those stars always to start you to wonder, are the stars just a portal to another world?

A small town in Western Australia called Cocklebidy is remote, hot, dry, dusty and can be a lonely place if you break down. There is nowhere else to get fuel, food, spare parts or accommodation and serves everyone including bush pilots.
Much like the Grey Nomads, I was surprised to see the plane being refueled among the cars and caravans. He had drawn a crowd who stood around watching and photographing him go about his business. Once refueled, the pilot walked the small plane to the rear of the roadhouse, lined up on the dirt airstrip and took off. I half expected to see him again at the next remote roadhouse getting more fuel.
Asking at the counter if that’s a regular occurrence around here, he replied yeah it happens from time to time!
Clarification – A Grey Nomad is (normally) a couple who have retired and have purchased a vehicle and caravan to travel around Australia in their retirement.
