Breakaways

The Breakaways are a spectacular example of arid scenery where over 70 million years ago was an inland sea. The region is rich in Aboriginal and European history and is home to an array of native fauna and flora, which have successfully adapted to one of the world's harshest environments.

Location: approximately 33km north of Coober Pedy

Moon Plain

The Moon Plain is a vast expanse of rocky plains that looks like a lunar landscape. It has been the set for many movies including Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome.

Approximately 15km north-east of Coober Pedy.
