Driving across the Nullarbor Plain is one of the world’s greatest road trips and now travellers can have all the facts at their fingertips with the launch of a digital app and complimentary physical map.

The two new tools will assist visitors to plan, book and explore one the more than 1,100 kilometres of spectacular outback between Adelaide in South Australia and Perth in Western Australia.

The new interactive digital guide and tourism app details the highlights of the trip, such at Head of Bight where wales congregate each winter and visitors can watch them from cliffside platforms.

In a wild place where internet and phone access is intermittent, the downloadable app sits in the memory of mobile devices such as iPads and Android tablets.

The self-drive market, including caravanners, is very important to the regional economies along the route, including the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

The app and map have been developed and released by Regional Development Australia Whyalla and Eyre Peninsula in a cross border partnership with Australia’s Golden Outback, the South Australian Tourism Commission and the Outback Communities Authority.
