Wombat bones in Mungo National Park, NSW, Australia

Wombat bones in Mungo National Park, NSW, Australia


These are fossilized wombat bones sticking out of the sand in Mungo National Park. The wombat probably died near a lake before the end of the last ice age about 20,000 years ago. These bones are constantly appearing in Mungo as the sand erodes.

Coober Pedy

Posted by on July 14, 2008

I’ve left Adelaide and am now in Coober Pedy, South Australia.

This town is……unique. The place i’m stayin is 15 feet underground. Many of the buildings here are underground, built by miners looking for opal. The town sort of looks like Tatooine from Star Wars.

My bus arrived at 5am and I slept until 11am. It is easy to lose track of time when you can’t see the sun.

I’ll be here for two days shooting some podcast video, then I’m off to Uluru and Alice Springs.
