James – Coober Pedy

We left Ayers Rock and drove to Coober Pedy, the Opal capital of the world.  Firstly we went to the Visitor information centre to see what the attractions were and which caravan park to stay in.  After we set up we went to a kangaroo feeding centre where we fed them banana chips and wasabi peas.DSC_5701

Next we went to the Breakaways.  I bet they were the only hills for 100 miles!  We came back from the Breakaways to do some fossicking in the fossicking pits.  We went out to dinner in an underground restaurant.  The owner of the restaurant gave us free ice cream and he gave mum and dad two cups of wine.DSC_5693

The camp kitchen in the caravan park that we were staying at was really good because it had two ovens, two microwaves, two sets of four gas burners, two hot plates, three taps, a TV and four sets of eight seater tables !!

I really wish we could have stayed at the underground campsite but we couldn’t because we have a caravan and it is only for tents.

After Coober Pedy we went to lake Eyre which is a salt lake.  We tried to ride our bikes on it but it had a layer of mud under the salt and we got stuck.


Bye from James for now!

One thought on “James – Coober Pedy

  1. James, when I was in Coober Pedy I stayed in an underground motel. I was in town reviewing solar power for hospitals, and had time to visit the golf course and an underground museum. The gold course was quite unlike the very green course at Pennant Hills. Cheers, Pa
