Continuing south from Alice through Australia's desolate "red heart", with road trains and kangaroos as our companions, we'll eventually arrive in the opal mining center of Coober Pedy, which has been the base for "end of the world" movies including Mad Max.
Then it's across the government-owned Woomera Prohibited Area, the western world's largest ground and airspace weapons testing range, to the eerie village of Woomera, home to rocket scientists and a Missile Park. Our tran-Outback 'rideabout' ends at Port Augusta, the 'Crossroads of Australia,' at the top of Spencer Gulf. From there it's a 3 day spin through South Australia's fabled wine country to the sophisticated city of Adelaide, which is renowned for its many festivals and culinary delights.
After our month long journey down the Stuart Highway, Adelaide may feel like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Here you can spend your rest day visiting the superb central market, wandering thru botanical gardens and art galleries, or imbibing Shiraz and Riesling at the National Wine Centre.
