Watch native animals wander freely, eagles circle the clear blue skies, Emus casually crossing the road and Kangaroos lazily resting in the golden grass. There are perfect trails for nature walks and some adventure off the road cycling tracks. Be captivated by iconic attractions, such as huge natural amphitheater of Wilpiena Pound, the razor back ridges and astronomical observatory at Arkaroola, the unusual outback town of Coober Pedy - the largest producers of precious opal in the World and half the residents live underground in dugouts. Nearby is the striking rock landscape of the breakaways, best seen at the sunset. Take a scenic flight over Lake Eyre, a vast salt lake that rarely fills with water but when it does, its a magnificent sight attracting an enormous number of waterbirds. Make sure you crawl into one of the outback pubs for friendly local hospitality and to sample some creative menus.
