Coober Pedy holds a fascination for visitors from all over the world.
An underground town where you could arrive with just the shirt on Your back and leave a millionaire. Underground homes, easy-going lifestyle and the mystery of the dusty lunar landscape make Coober Pedy a unique and special place. Tour the town, hear about its history, about our precious water supplies and power generation. Every element of life is hard-won in Coober Pedy. Umoona – we venture down a former working mine to see opal trace embedded in the sandstone, includes an underground home including a description of opal formation. View the Breakaways, a range of colourful exposed sandstone outcrops – spectacular views over the Moon Plain – once an inland sea. This dramatically beautiful area has been the set for many internationally known movies. Enjoy drinks and a cheese platter while ingesting the view. See the famous Dog Fence (dingo fence) – stretching 5,300 km acros Australia. Be awed by the Serbian Underground Church – spectacular excavation, traditional Serbian Orthodox architecture and fascinating sand stone carvings. Enjoy a post tour free drink at the Level Bar on completion of your tour.
