We left Port Augusta quite early for what was going to be a long drive. First stop was the town of Woomera where the famous rocket test range is, I can remember as boy in primary school reading about the exciting things they were doing in Woomera, they even launched a satellite from there. The history of Woomera is all around with many displays of rockets, missiles and jets in various historical parks around town.
When I finally got dragged away from Woomera we headed north, the most disappointing thing about travelling distances in South Australia was the lack of shade and rest rooms, a few bush excursions were required. We came across Lake Hart which is is a dried salt lake at the moment. Lea and I ventured down and had a look.
Next stop Coober Pedy
