Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Woomera 30 May 2006

Went on a 2 hour tour of the Olympic Dam mining site at Roxby. This is a huge site that is set to triple in size. It was a bit extraordinary in the middle of this no-mans land. Copper and uranium are the big winners here with the extra bonus being the by-products of gold and silver. Stayed overnight at the caravan park in Woomera because the new batteries were not performing correctly. We made a hard decision to go back to Port Augusta to get them checked as the way forward looks like there is not much mechanical support.
