    Perth to Coober Pedy & return

    Leaving Perth 19 August in a 2016 Prado 150 with 2 other vehicles heading offroad where possible for Coober Pedy via Paynes Find, Sandstone, Leonora, Laverton, Ilkurlka Roadhouse and Anne Beadell Hwy. From Coober Pedy heading south via Malbooma, Googs Track, Mt Finke, Fowlers Bay, Head of Bight (hoping to see whales), Abrakurre Cave on the Nullarbor Plain using Old Coach Road, Eyre Bird Sanctuary then back home via Norseman and Hyden, a 3 week trip in all. Anywhere else en-route we should make sure not to miss?

    I'd see if you can get into Maralinga. Your in the area and it's well worth seeing.

    Jump on the web as you need to book in to get access.
    Part of Australia's (dark) history. Well worth doing it.

    My wife and I are travelling with 2 other vehicles and the agreed route is too far from Maralinga. However after reading more about the place since your suggestion I will definitely keep that in mind for another trip. Thanks.

    Actually when you leave googs you'll be going right past the turnoff as you head back West. It's on your way back to WA.
    I'd suggest get on the maralinga page and have a read of the directions.
