Pimba to Coober Pedy

After Port Pirie we travelled north along the Stuart Highway, passing the southern end of Andamooka Ranges before reaching the town of Pimba, the plains of the Woomera Protected Area and opal mining town, Coober Pedy. The highway was framed by mallee scrub, saltbush, saltlakes and distant horizons.  We stopped to look at Island Lagoon, Pimba. At Coober Pedy, the mining landscape and underground homes contrasted with a beautiful flush of seasonal wild flowers.
