In many ways South Australia is a somewhat undiscovered location within Australia. When we talk about the Australian outback, the chances are you’re thinking about Northern Territory or Western Australia. Yet more than 80% of South Australia consists of awe inspiring outback country with well known destinations such as the Flinders Ranges, the underground opal mining town Coober Pedy, the stunning desert oasis of Coongie Lakes and Australia’s largest complex of artesian springs in the middle of the Simpson Desert. If a complete change of lifestyle is what you’re looking for, then the harsh and unforgiving beauty of the South Australian outback awaits.
