Roxby Downs Main street
The Opal Mining town of Andamooka or the famous Oodnatta track.
Both the Indian Pacific and the Ghan Train pass through here on their way to Alice Springs. There are also several salt lakes nearby such as Lake Hart and Island Lagoon. After lunch we swapped the bus for the car and drove off to Roxby Downs (about 82km)which is a fairly new modern town created around the BHP Olympic Dam Mine. It was rather like a Oasis in the middle of nowhere. Gold some silver, nickel and copper are mined here.
