Coober Pedy - 12th September 2009
Whilst Coober Pedy mightn't be a place you'd choose to live (unless you like the allure of striking it rich mining opal, perhaps one day), it is a visually stunning town. In addition to the eeriness of the tailings around the town, there is also the broken away range of coloured hills known as The Breakaways located to the north of the town. Looking oddly alien and surrounded by a pale barren plain known as the Moon Plain, it is easy to see why the location has been used in many movies and commercials.
