At first glance, I thought this was Africa. In actual fact, Travellerspoint member bubblej caught this scene in outback Australia, about 550 kilometres north of Adelaide, near the small mining town of Roxby Downs.
Roxby Downs is best known for Olympic Dam, Australia's largest uranium dam. Not surprisingly, it's a rather controversial town, especially as the Australian government plans to expand its uranium mining program. Just this week, BHP Bilton Ltd announced it intends to make Olympic Dam the world's "pre-eminent supplier of uranium".
