|Eucalyptus calcareana (the name refers to the limestone habitat) over bluebush, Maireana spp., near Nundroo.|
|Eastern edge of the plain, with only scattered trees now to break the horizon.|
|Low teatrees - including Melaleuca spp. - above, |
and chenopods (especially bluebushes and saltbushes) below,
forming the great treeless plains.
|The magnificent Bunda cliffs, near the Head of the Bight (above and below).|
|The Bunda Cliffs leave the coast here, at the state border, so that there is now a coastal plain seaward of the plateau.|
|Two views from the top of the Madura Pass; above, looking east along the edge of the Hampton Plateau.|
Below, looking out towards the distant ocean across the Roe Plain.
|Eucalyptus socialis woodland near Caiguna, WA.|
|Start of the 146km straight, just west of Caiguna.|
|Sinkhole just outside of Caiguna. Some of the caves have produced some very important fossil troves, including the only complete skeleton of the formidable marsupial 'lion', Thylacoleo carnifex.|
Finally, near Balladonia, we enter the beautiful vast woodlands of the Goldfields area of WA, worthy of a posting in their own right one day.
