Purpose built to lure workers to the edge of the desert to mine and service the controversial Olympic Dam uranium deposits, Roxby Downs survived bitter protests in the early 1980s to develop into a modern town with all the facilities needed for a quality lifestyle.

It has its own shopping centre, tavern, swimming pool, golf course, tennis and squash courts and bowling green. The town also hosts the Boogie in the Bush knees-up in July and a picnic race meeting in August.

Visitors can take organised tours of the surface mining and processing operations from March to November. The small fee charged for the tour goes to the Royal Flying Doctor Service. To

reach Roxby Downs, you turn north-east off the Stuart Highway at Pimba, which is 173km north of Port Augusta. Woomera lies 7km along the turn-off from Pimba and Roxbury Downs is another 75km down the road.

The state’s largest and oldest opal mining town of Coober Pedy is 370km north of Pimba.
