We travelled south again and stayed at roadhouse caravan parks at Kalgera NT on Monday, then at Cadney Homestead SA on Tuesday. Easy drives, weather still held out. Arrived Coober Pedy just before mid-day on Wednesday. Plenty of flat land, scrubby ground cover and so very dry and dusty. The old sinuses are complaining with the dust.
Enough touristy things to do to keep us busy for the 3 days we stayed. On the second day we were there, we called in for a cup of coffee at 'The Didgeridoo Underground Cafe' - and what a mistake that was. The guy charged us $17.00 for a cup of strong coffee (flat white). We don't know what was so magic about his beans, but the coffee wasn't all that good, let alone what we were charged. Should have asked before hand how much he was going to charge. On Friday morning we tried again and called into "THE UNDERGROUND CAFE RESTAURANT" and it was a great cuppa - strong, half the price and first rate.
We went on a tour run by the Stuart Range Caravan Park (where we stayed). It was a 5 hour tour and took us to plenty of places - excellent value and great photos. A tour well worth taking. Really enjoyed this stay.
