We visited the underground bookshop, an underground bar, a few underground churches, and also splashed out on a night in an underground hotel. Other highlights of CP were driving to see the visually stunning Breakaways mountains, which also took in a drive along the Dog Fence, [over 5000km long and built to keep dingoes from getting into sheep country]. A few comments about the Great Wall of China and keeping rabbits out were made, of course!
We also managed to visit an art gallery that doubles as a kangaroo refuge, where both Brigid and Imogen cradled orphan roos (and Alistair got a lesson in local Aboriginal art and almost ended up buying a canvas or two), and enjoyed a sundown visit to 'The Big Winch' [I have a feeling there will be a lot of ‘Big’ things featured in this blog]. The girls also tried their luck at noodling (looking for opal colour in the spoil left behind by the miners) with a little bit of success and purchased that very CP souvenir – opals.
