(If you already read my thoughts on Crossing the Nullarbor Plain, sorry, this is somewhat of a repeat.)
Commencing at the Head of the Bight, the Bunda Cliffs were formed when Australia separated from Antarctica approximately 65 million years ago and are made up of fossiliferous limestone called Wilson Limestone. These cliffs are the remains of an ancient ocean bed that was subject to geological uplifting millions of years ago.
The Bunda Cliffs are part of the longest uninterrupted line of sea cliffs in the world. With heights varying from 60 to 120 metres, they are a magnificent, hypnotic, and awe-inspiring sight and stretch in an unbroken line for approx. 200 kilometres (124.4 miles).
No other continent or country can match the cliffs for this length of coastline.
