Travel south down the Explorer Highway, east of the A.P.Y. aboriginal lands to Marla. After a lunch break it’s on to the largest opal mining field in the world, Coober Pedy! Heading into town we will pass the extensive mining operations that help make this place so unique. Coober Pedy is a town where people live underground to escape the harsh desert conditions.

Explore Coober Pedy by night and enjoy a meal at one of the local restaurants or cafés that are a part of this outback town.

Meals: at own expense.

After breakfast we head south again, through the desert country of northern South Australia, past the great expanses of salt lakes which make up some of this enormous desert country. Enjoy a lunch break in Port Augusta, the cross roads of Australia.

Witness a dramatic change in the landscape as we travel along the western side of the magnificent Flinders Ranges, one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth.
