Stepping into Port Augusta's Adlata Outback Centre . . . is like stepping back in time - literally. It sets out to capture the history of the Australian outback and particularly it's strong links with Port Augusta.
From Aboriginal Dreamtime creation stories, the period when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the ice-age and when man arrived . . . It follows in the footsteps of the early explorers and pioneers - documenting their determination, heartbreak and success.
Akurra - the giant Rainbow Serpent helps to take visitors on a journey through time . . .
Stunning audio-visual displays show what much of Australia used to be like.
“You have just experienced what the outback was like about 15 million years ago when the climate was mostly warm and humid”.
