Top Attractions within Olympic Dam

Lake Eyre
First spot you might wanna head on to is Lake Eyre. It's quite a unique lake since it's usually dry accompanied with a brilliant white salt crust. It can be scanned better in the air, actually. From William Creek or Coober Peedy, you can take a scenic flight over the slightly dehydrated body of water. It's quite an exhilarating ride with such breathtaking sights to boot. It's the perfect way to start your Olympic Dam adventure!

Dog Fence
Your next destination has to be the Dog Fence. Drive about 40km from Marree and you're bound to bump into (not literally though, I hope) into the longest fence in the world. It's like the Great Wall of China, but only it's a fence… and it's in Australia. Nevertheless, it's still a wonder in its own right!

Mound Springs
Saving the best for last, yeah? You final stop is the ever-lovely Mound Springs. If you're feeling a little knackered and are looking for some relaxing views, Mound Springs is sure to do the trick. Sit back, relax and watch the waterbirds and the plants living in perfect harmony. Yes, you're up for a Zen treat. Be enlightened, my friend.

The Mining Centre is an extremely large deposit of iron oxide gold cooper and is the main place where the locals work. Move your car hire and discover the mining center from Olympic Dam that produces copper, uranium, gold and silver. Although uranium only produces a small part of the profit, this is the largest known deposit in the world. If you are in Olympic Dam with your car hire, do not miss it because this is something you definitely cannot see in any other place.

The Mining Museum is an exhibition of the materials extracted from the mine in Olympic Dam and of the tools used from the beginning until now to extract cooper, gold, silver and uranium. You can also admire jewelry made from silver and gold and there is also a selling point if you want to buy jewelry produced in Olympic Dam, right from the source.

The Olympic Dam Monument is a monument made of stone with a black marble sheet engraved with information about the mining center. Witness the monument that was rose on the exact place where the site had the first drill on June 13, 1975, made by E. G. Whenan, driller at Western Mining Corporation's Exploration Division.
