Roxby Downs

Roxby Downs - Flinders Ranges And Outback - South Australia

Roxby Downs is 563 kilometres north of Adelaide city and a welcome detour and rest stop on the drive north to the Oodnadatta Track. The major drawcard for this township is the Olympic Dam Mine, producing refined copper, uranium oxide, gold and silver and is one of the largest of its kind in the world. The town of Roxby Downs was purpose built to assist the employees of the Olympic Dam Mining project, this fascinating complex runs service tours 3 days a week.

The town itself has modern facilities where visitors can enjoy a leisurely swing of the golf club, a rollup on the bowling green or a hit of tennis or squash. The Roxby Downs Cultural Precinct is the place to visit for a detailed account of the town and the dam's history, art gallery, visitors centre, outback cinema and cafe. Visit in March for the chance to join locals in the Outback Fringe Festival.
