Subjects : Mainly geological formations, wildlife elusive (reptiles and insects). Landmark cultural and spiritual. Amongst them, the geological formations called "TWO DOGS" (PUPA for Aborigines). The non-Aboriginal people call this rock formation "salt and pepper" or "castle", but Aboriginal people prefer to see two dogs sitting, one yellow and one white. Another important education is to the south west of TWO DOGS: this is called "MAN OWNER OF THE DOGS" (Wati for Aborigines), meaning "man owner of the dogs." It is a sacred place for the local Aboriginal people. E ', therefore, required to respect the places and traditions. Particularly striking the sunsets and sunrises, affecting the sky and rock formations at 360 °. Incredible!

Recommended equipment : Wide angle to medium telephoto. Tripod when shooting at dusk and dawn (strongly recommended, also because in Coober Pedy, there was not much to do!). Good hiking clothing, also to prevent the presence of reptiles (I have not given the shadow ...). They move around by car (a 4x4 recommended) then the weight of the equipment is not a problem. If you want to go trekking is recommended that one good backpack with two shoulder.

Best months : All year round 24 hours a day without interruption. However, inadvisable the hottest periods of the southern summer (winter for us) where they can be reached 50 ° C. The place is quite isolated and is therefore not advisable to venture into paths without adequate resources, equipment and water supply.

How to get there : The reserve is located at 33km from the center of Cober Pedy and is easily reached in about 30 minutes. From Cober Pedy along the seventeen mile road and take the Stuart Highway north and follow it for about 25 km, careful with driving directions placed on the roadside, turn right onto a dirt road (quite easy) follow it down to about 8 km.

Visits : Free visit. It is not required to pay any ticket to enter the reserve.

Notes : The place is quite isolated and little used and is therefore not advisable to venture into paths without adequate resources, equipment and water supply, especially during the hottest months of the year.
