Mundrabilla is a roadhouse on the Eyre Highway between Madura and Eucla.
There is motel and caravan park accommodation at the roadhouse and you can get meals from the restaurant and drinks from the bar.
There isn't a great deal in the area to attract visitors but the Great Australian Bight is 20km south of the roadhouse via dirt road.
If you have a 4WD ask the roadhouse for directions.

accompanied by an Aboriginal named Wylie, passed through this area during his east - west exploration in 1841.
Mundrabilla station was established by Bill and Ann McGill and John and Tom Kennedy
(two Irishmen) in 1871. They brought 1500 sheep across from Esperance with the intention of settling near the telegraph
station at Eucla but lack of water forced them to turn back west and they eventually chose to
stay at Mundrabilla.
They are credited with giving the location its name but the word is almost certainly dervived from the local Aboriginal dialect.
Unfortunately the meaning is not known.
This was the first sheep station on the Nullarbor. The area they settled was not the only hostile
obstacle to overcome. Tom Kennedy was speared to death by Aborigines and Anne
McGill died in childbirth in 1879.
Early in the 20th century there was a great deal of exploratory drilling for underground water sources. A bore sunk at Mundrabilla went down 472 metres but all it found was rock.
The area contains fragments of a meteorite spread over a 60 kilometre range which makes it one of the largest meteorite sites in the world.
