On the Road – Port Augusta, Woomera, Lake Heart, and Coober Pedy

WinniNowie Conservation Park

We camped at Winnniowie Conservation Park before leaving to Coober Pedy the next morning.

Our camp site.


In 1947 Woomera was established as a British rocket testing site.We saw lots of rockets, plains and anti-aircraft guns. The prohibited area covers around 127,000 km and is part of the testing range.

Lake Heart

Along the way we also saw Lake Heart witch is a salt lake with means you can pick up the salt and taste it anywhere.

Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy is known for it’s opal mining and one of Australia’s most unique places because people live underground. And this was one of the first places we saw the red sand that became so familiar.
