In the UK, two of my mates used to live around the corner from each other. Now, they live on the opposite side of the globe, and 6400 road-km from each other.

And as the Australian governmental authorities had thoughfully laid 6400km of roads linking them both, wasn't it only right that I should be the one to test them out?

Well, not just me: me and another mate. A colleague from a previous life wanted to join the fun from Adelaide to Perth to experience the Nullarbor Plain from ground level. Something which 99% of the Aussie travellers met so far had considered to be a certifiable desire.

Just one example of Australia's unusual flora: the Grass Tree (Kingia Austalis).

I know several educated and emotionally stable people who would readily give up chocolate for a hair-do like this.
