Border Village (also known as BP Border Village Roadhouse) is a locality and roadhouse along the Eyre Highway on the South Australian side of the border between that state and Western Australia.[1]

The roadhouse offers a full range of services, and also marks the western end of the cliffs separating the Nullarbor Plain from the Great Australian Bight.[1]

There is a Western Australian agricultural checkpoint at Border Village, and also "Hole 6: Border Kangaroo" of the Nullarbor Links golf course.[2]

The roadhouse is one of five settlements that uses the Central Western Standard Time (UTC+08:45). It is also the only place in South Australia where Daylight Saving Time is not in use.
