A great tour of the local and "not so local" attractions. The breakaways are the most stunning with the rich ochre colours in the afternoon light. You will visit some of the most spectacular places for great photography.

Wayne is excellent, the sunset trip to the breakaways is a must if you are in Coober Pedy. The views were stunning, and the tour private, even the wine cheese and bikkies watching the sunset
