A rare insight into the underground world of our miners awaits you at Roxby Downs, deep in the Australian outback. Just over two hours from Port Augusta and 563 kilometres from Adelaide, Roxby Downs is a must-see. Discovery Parks - Roxby Downs (formerly Myall Grove Holiday Park) is a well-appointed caravan park with facilities that will surprise you.

You’ll be amazed by the jaw-dropping BHP Billiton Olympic Dam, which produces 9 million tonnes of ore annually – we recommend the virtual underground tour. Take a guided sunset walk of the Arid Recovery Reserve to explore dunes, follow animal tracks and spot nocturnal wildlife. While you’re there, don’t forget the fascinating town of Andamooka – an opal lover’s paradise.
