Indigenous

The Flinders Ranges and Outback is one of Austalia's richest areas of Aboriginal heritage
and living culture.The national features of the Flinders Ranges are still of strong personal significance to the Adnyamathanha people - and the geology, topography, flora, fauna
and climate all feature in traditional stories and legends.

 

The Coober Pedy Saints. 

They play Aussie Rules - which is not quite rugby and not quite soccer.
It's definitely a tough, athletic game which is played in most Australian states.
See the Saint in action! They will have left their halos and wings at home....

The opal capital of the world

Around 150 million years ago, Coober Pedy was covered by ocean - and when the water receded, the sandy silica minerals from the seabed flowed into the rocky cracks and cavities and solidified over time into multi-coloured gem-stone - opal. Explore the opal capital!
