We visited the Breakaways at sunset and it was beautiful. Something just magically about the landscape in the setting sun. Definitely a must see! But remember to check the information centres opening times so you can get a pass to go.

This is a must do for those visiting Coober Pedy. Take the Oodnadatta Road and turn left at The Breakaways sign. The unsealed road follows the Dog Fence and past the Moon Plain to The Breakaways, a rugged escarpment north of the town. Immense Aboriginal...More

The Breakaways are approximately 20klm from Coober Pedy on unsealed road. Beautiful to see in the late afternoon. A permit is required and obtained from the information center.

A truly unique changing landscape. A little like "just when you thought you had seen it all ...." Our tour guide (Aaron) matched all the landscape to local indigenous stories.

Caught a sunrise there and it was magical. The long shadows and soft light made for some great pics.

Just stunning! I heard about the breakaways when something came up in my newsfeed on fb. We were in total awe and couldn’t get enough of it. I highly recommend people take the time to spend here on either sunset or sunrise.

Beautiful drive out from Coober Pedy via Oodnadatta Track. Get to see the dingo fence before arriving at the lookouts. Great views from the lookouts 1 & 2. Definitely the best scenic spot around here.
