Five star free camping at 10k Peg Parking Area, The Nullarbor, South Australia

“We had traversed the Nullarbor 16 times before but never stayed at a camp site for more than one night. …after travelling in non-stop rain all day we crossed the WA/SA border and stopped at the 10K peg inside SA. The next morning we woke to find the rain had cleared and there was a beautiful, clear blue sky. The other campers spread over the large area headed off, we had the site to ourselves and so decided that we would chill out, enjoy the vista, have a fire and stay a second night. We live in such a lucky country.”


Michael Lennon

This site is just 10 km east of Border Village. It is pet friendly suitable for all vehicles, including Big Rigs and fires are allowed. There are only picnic tables and some shade – so please leave no trace. Access may be difficult in wet weather.

It may also be the last chance to use up fruit and vege, depending on which way you travel. There is lots of space behind the bushes, but it can get windy here.

Thanks Michael for your update and photos, we sure do live in a lucky country.

Far from boring, crossing the famed Nullarbor is an adventure that spans 1100km, linking Western Australia to South Australia. The uninterrupted straight road, views of the Great Australian Bight and whales, the world’s longest golf course and the character-filled roadhouses along the way – add it to your bucket list.
