Day 14-16 - Lake Eyre, Alberry Creek, William Creek, Coober Pedy

Today we went to Lake Eyre. Lake Eyre is a lake that gets water in it once in about 30 years!! And when it doesn't have water in it it is all salt! and unfortunately there was no water this time☹️ We also got some footage while we were flying the drone over Lake Eyre. Once we had seen enough of the salt we headed first to get a snack and to fill up on petrol and then to our campsite at the Oodnadatta Track for the night.

In the morning we  drove to Wabma Kadarbu mound springs, which were natural bubbling springs on the top of little mounds. The rain water goes underground in Queensland and gets pushed up into mounds to make a spring, and all that happens after about 1 million years! Some of the water can be up to 2 million years old! After we had looked at all of the springs we drove to William Creek where we had a hot chocolate at a cool old pub with money from another country, cards and stickers on the roof, and lots and lots of names on the walls! 

Today (my birthday 🎉) we started the day with some Choc chip hot cakes for breakfast 😋😲. When we had finished all of the yummy hot cakes, we drove on to Coober Pedy to stay the night. The next morning we woke up and quickly got ready for the Coober Pedy tour. On the tour we visited some underground churches, underground house, underground opal mine and we also did some noodling (which is looking for small opals on the ground.
