Roxby Downs is a mining town in South Australia about 80 kilometres from Woomera along Pimba and Roxby Downs Roads.  This town was built in 1987 and houses workers for the Olympic Dam Mine Site.  It is a lovely town with a great community atmosphere and a Visitor Information Centre located within a complex housing the town library, swimming pool (indoor and outdoor), cafe and art gallery.  

We noticed a large number of sporting fields in the centre of town which were all grassed and well looked after. There is also a golf course on the edge of town which has grass greens (not something you see much in the outback). Roxby Downs has good health and educational services. The population is about 3,500 and this looks like a lovely place to live – nice gardens, good roads and plenty of shopping.  

The Myall Grove Holiday Park is close to town with powered or unpowered caravan and camping sites as well as villas, studio suites or motel rooms for holiday accommodation.  Roxby Downs is a good place to base yourself for a tour of the Olympic Dam Mine site, Arid Recovery Reserve or take a short trip to Andamooka, an historic opal mining town about 30 kilometres away.  Lake Torrens is also close by and a very popular spot for boating.
