Want to get a real sense of the vastness of the outback? Head up to the Mundi Mundi Lookout for a view over the seemingly endless Mundi Mundi Plains.
It’s a sealed road all the way to the lookout, just a five-minute drive south of Silverton (or half an hour north of Broken Hill). But once you’re there, looking out to a horizon so distant that you can see the curvature of the planet, you could be at the ends of the earth.
It’s easy to see why the plains inspired the filmmaker George Miller, who used them for the setting of his post-apocalyptic 1981 movie, Mad Max 2.
Take a picnic, look out for wildlife including emus, kangaroos and eagles, and soak up an incredible sunset.
