A lot of truckies Spy has asked about good roadhouses have nominated the BP Caiguna in WA along the Eyre Highway on the Nullarbor.
Caiguna is located 182km east of Balladonia and 66km west of Cocklebiddy.
The drivers reckon the “truckie burger” which is a combination burger and steak sandwich is great for hungry people.
There is plenty of parking out the front for road trains, showers, and lots of food to choose from, as well as friendly workers.
Spy contacted the roadhouse by phone and spoke to Ben Leese who described himself as “an all-round worker”.
“We would get between 100 and 150 trucks a day stopping here and they come from Queensland, the NT, WA, SA, NSW and Victoria,” Leese said.
I asked Leese what was the favourite tucker that truckies order.
“For breakfast it would be lamb fry and veggies and at night usually t-bone and porterhouse steak,” he said.
Leese added that being along the Eyre Highway and the Nullarbor was a great location for truckies.
“We are 1090km from Perth and 1409km from Adelaide and open daily from 6am to 8pm,” he said.
It would be remiss of me not to mention one particular courtesy worker from there who was so helpful when I phoned her earlier.
“She is one of two Vietnamese women and an Indonesian who work here,” Leese said.
