In the Steps of Mad Max: The Breakaways on Screen

The Australian Outback has always felt very cinematic, the vast expanses of barren desert seeming alien to those who have grown up on the tiny isle of Great Britain. Watching films which make such good use of the desert land has always inspired a hankering to visit this weird and beautiful place. Driving about 30km outside Coober Pedy we came across the huge and empty desert land of the Breakaways, which forms part both of ‘Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome’ and ‘Priscilla Queen of The Desert.The barren landscape perfectly suits these weird and trippy films. Driving through the locations it is not that hard to imagine someone like Mad Max inhabiting the land around us and puts you right into the place of the characters on screen.
