Balladonia is situated on the Eyre Highway at the Western Australian end of the long Nullarbor journey and is a great place to stop and revive when travelling long distances. Visitors can see claypans typical of the region and old stone fences built by pioneer farmers in the 1800s. In July 1979, debris from the US Skylab fell and landed near the town.
Rocky outcrops and granite sheets collectively called Newman's Rocks are located 50 kilometres west of Balladonia. Beautiful wildflowers are abundant in the spring. Take the time to visit the cultural heritage museum which has been established in the Balladonia Roadhouse complex.
At the Balladonia Roadhouse complex dine-in or takeaway meals are available and basic dry goods are also sold. The hotel/motel offers modern, air-conditioned facilities and Balladonia also has caravan and camping sites.
