While a tropical low over the Pilbara has brought significant rain across Western Australia over the past week, the Ngaanyatjarra Lands and other parts of the northern Goldfields have experienced a particularly wet summer.

Jody Brown has lived in Warburton, 1,000km north-east of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, for around eight years, but said he had never seen the town wetter.

“It’s the greenest I’ve ever seen it, the grass is so long everywhere,” Mr Brown said.

“There are animals and wildlife and all sorts of things everywhere.””

WA hoping to win race to build Australia’s first electric car network …

WA hopes to build Australia's first road network of charging stations for electric cars.

WA hopes to build Australia’s first road network of charging stations for electric cars.

“The race to build Australia’s first electric car highway could be won by WA, with a plan to build a network of charging stations throughout the South West.”

Read article … WA hoping to win race to build Australia’s first electric car network – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).

“The network looks set to be up and running by mid-2016, but the RAC will have to put its foot down if it wants to set a precedent.

On the other side of the country, electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla is also planning a supercharger network linking Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.

I think it would be great if Western Australia could lead the nation and build the first electric highway,” Stephen Moir, of WA’s Motor Trade Association, said.”

“The Nullarbor Plain (/ˈnʌlərbɔr/ nul-ər-bor; Latin: nullus, “no”, and arbor, “tree”) is part of the area of flat, almost treeless, arid or semi-arid country of southern Australia, located on the Great Australian Bight coast with the Great Victoria Desert to its north. It is the world’s largest single piece of limestone, and occupies an area of about 200,000 square kilometres (77,000 sq mi). At its widest point, it stretches about 1,100 kilometres (684 mi) from east to west between South Australia (SA) and Western Australia (WA).” Wikipedia

I have driven across the Nullarbor in the late 1970’s and believe me it is an experience with magnificent scenery. The view out over the southern ocean is absolutely amazing. Something for your bucket list.

Hope you enjoyed.
