We visited an underground pub in the evening and spent the night sleeping underground in a dormitory. It was the best night sleep I had had in a while (I'll trade my swag for a bunk bed anyday!). In the morning we went on a tour of an underground house / opal mine. We were told many stores about the local people blowing up cars, the local newspaper building and even the police station! Unlike in Bolivia you need a license to buy explosives here...
Again we had a long driving afternoon down to Port Germein. We killed the time playing bingo and Celebrity Heads. The next morning we had a lie in and I helped cook pancakes for a late breakfast. We visited Port Germein's claim to fame.... the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere! At 1532m it took a while to walk all the way to the end. Next we headed to Mount Remarkable National Park and went for a walk to spot some native wildlife. We saw trapdoor spiders, wallabies, emus, and some weird lizard type creatures. In the afternoon we headed down to Adelaide where my tour ended. I had a great time on the tour and I definitely recommend a trip to Uluru & the Red Centre.
