Most residents live underground, some in abandoned mines but others in bespoke caves which are excavated to provide the right number of rooms. The temperature underground is a constant 22-24C. Above ground the heat can get up to 50C in summer and -5C in winter. Cave life is a no brainer in these conditions.
We had the use of a bunk house and showers for lunch, all underground naturally, and escaped the heat of the day here before have a mine tour.
After lunch we headed North East towards Oodnadatta. We bush camped by a dry creek about an hour short of the settlement. En route the landscape was extreme, we crossed Moon Plain, where sceptics claim the filming of the first moon landings were faked.
