Old Telegraph StationThe telegraph station building is half-filled with sand dunes, which along with other occasional bricks visible above the sand, gives a tantalising glimpse of the old town now buried under the sand.
BeachDesolate beach where you might be the only one there to enjoy the views to Antarctica. The ruins of the old jetty are to the west. To the east are several nice large sand dunes.
Traveller's Cross and Eyre Memorialaddress: next to the caravan parkMemorials that offer good views down towards the beach.
Bunda CliffsBetween Eucla and Nullarbor, the highway runs close to dramatic sea cliffs. Several popular viewing spots are signposted (and usually visible by the gaggle of caravans) but there are also other roads (short, decent dirt roads) leading to the cliffs. Be very careful as the cliffs are unstable. Note that closer to Nullarbor, the cliffs steeply overlook the sea, but close to Eucla, the cliffs roll down to a lower level. Therefore, it's worthwhile to visit all the lookouts.
Eucla Motor HotelOffers patchy pub food at high prices.
