Coober Pedy Itinerary: Day 10

In the mining city Coober Pedy at least half of the population lives underground just to escape from the high temperatures during the summer. It’s so fascinating that you really have to take a look around in this town for yourself. Coober Pedy is the only place where you’ll find underground hotels, restaurants, bars, an underground church, and a golf course without grass.

Ayers Rock/Uluru Itinerary: Day 13

Ayers Rock is Australia's most recognisable natural icon. Standing 348 metres high, the monolith has great cultural significance for the traditional Aboriginal owners, the Anangu people.


Marla Roadhouse, the real country side
Marla is fairly unknown but it's beautiful and unique. Admire the wildflowers on the path and like in Coober Pedy, visit the underground church to escape the sun and hot temperatures. See the scenery for yourself in this video, coming directly from the centre of the earth. Enjoy!
