This sign post, marking the state border from South Australia into Western Australia, is located on the Nullabour Plain, along side the Trans Australian Railway line, 730 kilometres East of the nearest town of Kalgoorlie, population of 40,200, and West of Tarcoola, population of just 38.

"Nullabour" means "No Trees", in the Latin.

The Nullabour Plain is a vast flat plain covering an area of over 200,00 square kilometres, and is the location for the main access highway between Western Australia, and the Eastern States, with the last bit of the highway not being sealed until 1976.

The railway line has the longest straight section of railway in the world (478 km), while the Eyre Highway, contains the longest straight section of tarred road in Australia (146 km).
