Natural Attractions

The Breakaways are one of South Australia’s Outback gems. They’re a striking rocky landscape of flat-topped mesas.

The Breakaways were once covered by an inland sea. They are now home to an array of native fauna and flora. Take in this remarkable view, which you’ll find approximately 33 kilometres north of Coober Pedy.

The best time to see the awesome Breakaways is sunset, when you can appreciate the amazing sandstone colours.

South Australian tour operators can take you there to explore the site or you can drive yourself however permits should be collected from the Coober Pedy Visitor Centre in the District Council Office on Hutchinson Street before departing. Permits are AUD2.20 per person.
