Day 3 – Port Augusta to Coober Pedy

We were greeted by this beautiful sunrise above the magnificent Flinders Ranges on our drive up north through the Explorer’s Way (Stuart Hwy). Interesting stops on roadhouses until we reached the unique opal mining town of Coober Pedy. Our motel was underground an a dugout – a very unique and interesting experience. Very sustainable with very constant temperatures regardless of outside conditions which can be very harsh. We looked at a number of attractions and one stood out, the inspiration for Crocodile Dundee which was Crocodile Harry’s Underground Nest.
