Caiguna, Madura, Eucla, Nullabor Roadhouses - Day 2 across the Nullabor Plains

We set off from Caiguna early. 
While we were enjoying sunshine yesterday, strong winds and rain had discouraged people from venturing west from Ceduna yesterday. That explains why we saw so little traffic yesterday. 
There is plenty of oncoming traffic today. 

Plenty of long straights and then over Madura Pass to the Madura Roadhouse.

wth flags flying - notice the NZ flag.
 Figure this letter puzzle out....
Your Curiosity Will Cost You A Twenty Dollar Donation For the Royal Flying Doctor, Thank You.
 Just a routine pre-flight check.
 Eucla Road House overlooks the Australian Bight.

We cross the West Australia/ South Australia border and continue eastwards.
We are on the look out for camels, wombats and kangaroos...
 along the straight and narrow road bounded by white crushed limestone.
The Nullabor was ocean floor 25million years ago.
 We arrive at Nullabor Roadhouse in time to take a flight over the Head of Bight which is inhabited by 140 Southern right whales through the winter months. 53 Mothers and their calves and 34 singles.

Ahhh, there's one.
