Old Timers MineUnderground HouseThis morning we took a look around Coober Pedy, and visited the ‘Old Timers Mine’ which contained a hand dug mine, museum and typical underground house. Mining with pick and shovel in these hard grounds sounds like too much back breaking work for me.

One things for sure, there is no grass in Coober, just lots of dust and holes dug everywhere. It is a sight to behold as you drive along the highway with thousands of mounds of dirt and mine holes to match.Salt Lake

We stopped at Lake Hart a huge salt lake right next to the Trans Australian Railway line. It was quite amazing to see, touch and walk on this massive salt plain, one of many in the area.
