Early start to Port Augusta where we stopped at Coles to stock up. We then visited the local Catholic Church, All Saints Parish, and had some lunch at the park. On our way to Woomera to have a look at the closed immigration detention centre, only to find the RAAF Base instead. We weren't aware that Woomera was a testing site for rockets, which was very interesting to learn about. Back on the road again, our aim to get as close as we can to Coober Pedy before dark, only to find a beautiful spot at Lake Hart that we just had to camp at for the night.
