We visited the golf course which is rated in the top ten most unique golf courses in the world. It has blacks (not greens) that have the sand mixed with sump oil to stop it blowing away, you scrape yourself a pathway between the hole and your ball before putting. There are synthetic tees like at driving ranges and the player carries a patch of it with them for using on the fairways.
"The Breakaways" is one of the must see features of the area and are really impressive. They are named this as the Aboriginals say they appear to have broken away from the rest of the land, is was like the land around them had dropped and they had stayed up.
The night was spent in an underground two bedroom apartment which was really worth doing. The internal temperature remains fairly constant throughout the year between 20 and 25 degrees even though outside can go from zero to 40. With an obvious lack of windows it was absolute darkness when the lights go out, you couldn't tell if your eyes were open or shut! Also the silence was eerie due to the 1.5mtr thick walls.
