This campsite is located in Nuytsland Nature Reserve

Nuytsland Nature Reserve embraces 400 000 ha and close to 500 km of coastline, incorporating the majestic cliffs and ocean beaches of the Great Australian Bight. Stretching from Cape Arid National Park eastward to Red Rock Point, the reserve contains a number of small caves and collapsed caverns known as dolines, as well as sections of the old Overland Telegraph Line, constructed in 1876. Also within the area is the Eyre Bird Observatory, a habitat for an abundance of native flora and fauna and a very popular location for birdwatchers. Another highlight is Twilight Cove, which is famous along the Nullarbor for its 70 m stretch of limestone cliffs overlooking the Bight. Anglers will find excellent fishing along this section of coast.
