The landscape was breathtaking as we watched the sunset. Quite accessible (we had a 4wd) from Coober Pedy. Very few tourists around (we only saw 3), so be prepared for your travels to a remote area.

Beautiful trip out if you go the back way out of coober pedy. (not along the Stuart) we went at dusk and saw a gorgeous sunset. Only drawback were the flies, but you learn to live with them at this time of the year.

This too was part of our Ghan excursion of Coober-Pedy! "A picture tells 1000 words" so I will simply attach some photos. "Beautiful", "impressive", and "outstanding" all fail to describe the beauty.

This is a really easy drive that can be done without a 4 wheel drive. Best to go for sunrise or sunset to capture the changing colours. However be aware of animals when driving at dawn or dusk. Drones not allowed. Dog fence is really...More

Part of our Ghan trip. Got to lookout with drinks laid out so we could appreciate the natural beauty with a cold beer or wine. Trip to the look out was picturesque.

Mostly on dirt/gravel roads you need a $10 Permit to enter this are which is absolutely stunning. The 5300km dog fence runs alongside the road for a while and the landscape is surprising and quite awe inspiring

We arrived late in the day, just before sunset, since we had underestimated the distance and little sightseeing stops on the way. Beautiful desert landscape, amazing colour contrasts and almost as on a different planet.

Throughout my two-week road trip from Melbourne to Uluru, this was definitely the most spectacular view. Simply stunning. Go just before sunrise, or at sunset to enjoy a marvellous show as the sun creeps over it.

The Breakaway park is now excluded from mining for opal, although there must be lage quantities in the old lake bed. It lies a good distance north of Coober Pady and has some sites for viewing the hills or the sunset.
