The name “Nullarbor” was borrowed from the Australian Nullarbor Plains and means “No Trees” null = zero and arbour = trees. This name is however no longer appropriate as there is an abundance of shrubs, trees and flowers in the beautiful ambling gardens with rolling lawns. We have 3 sparkling pools with shady thatch lapas to relax around shared by the 10 units. All units have their own individual braai area and thatch lapas. Laundry facilities are available on request and units are serviced daily at an extra charge.
Slow down and experience true country lifestyle with birds in abundance. Nullarbor is ideal for a city escape, honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries and naturally – marriage proposals.
