Looking for someone who did the Nullarbor road trip to get to the Grand Final


Hi Eagles’ supporters


If you know anyone who did the Perth-Melbourne drive for the Grand Final, or you did it yourself, please let me know.

  1. Brett 'BD' Dutschke says

    My brother and mum met two car loads of Eagles’ supporters at Kimba. He spoke with one car load near the Big Galah, the other near the silos, and discovered they spent two and a half days driving to Melbourne but were planning to go express on their way back to Perth, only stopping for pies and fuel.

  2. I did it for the Ashes back in 2010, if that counts!
