We visited this amazing place just outside of Coober Pedy which we didn’t know existed before today. Dirt road out to it but the journey looks like another planet and very beautiful in it’s own way, would highly recommend!

Give yourself at least 2 to 3 hours to do the loop out to the Breakaways and return. That way you can take your time, stop regularly, take plenty of photos and take in the desert silence and the remarkable views. This can be reversed...More

It's bleak, hard and breathtaking and well worth the drive along the Dingo Fence from Coober Pedy. Morning and evening show the best colours, but it's amazing at any time of day.

Well worth a few hours, half a day, to visit this awesome panorama, grab some photos, and enjoy what Australia does really well.....opals and desert. Desert scenery here is just stupendous. Loved it.

It is some 35 kilometers out of Coober Pedy on a dirt road and worth a look as the scenery is different to anything else around. As this is Aboriginal owned land there is a $10 per person fee to enter. Take a look at...More

Breakaways is breathtaking. The visit to the conservation park was well-complemented with Aaron's Noble Tour commentary and explanation of the areas history and basic indigenous recognition of the various Breakaways rocks and sites. This is a MUST-SEE and MUST-DO while at Coober Pedy. Make sure...More

Looking at the Breakaways you can see what the tour guide is talking about that there was once a sea there.
