200km past Norseman with nothing in between you come to Balladonia. There was evidence of bushfires and you could smell the smoke, buy I'm not sure if this is the area that caused the road to be closed or if there is more to come later along the route. These fires came close to the Roadhouse/Motel. It has an interesting museum which tells of the story of the Skylab crash landing in the are.
The road is famous as "The Longest Straight Stretch of Road in Australia" - 146kms or 90miles of straight road, no bends!
Lots of towers - not sure what they were but the phone coverage didn't improve. No phone coverage or internet out here.Read more
