Coober Pedy, commonly known as "the opal capital of the world", is a must see destination whilst travelling the Australian outback.

Situated halfway between South Australia's capital - Adelaide, and Alice Springs and Uluru, (Ayers Rock), it is well worth taking the time to visit for a few days to learn of its history and surroundings by visiting opal mines and attractions, as well as marvel at the unique underground lifestyle and culture within this amazing outback town. 

My beautiful and comfortable dugouts "Di's Place" and "Dinky Di's Dugout" gives you an inside view of how locals live whilst you enjoy everything Coober Pedy has to offer.

Stay in underground accommodation while visiting the surrounding geography of Coober Pedy.

Amongst the many attractions is "The Dog Fence" , the longest fence in the world, which separates the dingo's north, from the sheep country south. Enjoy one of our beautiful sunsets over The Breakaways, where Mad Max, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Red Planet were filmed in the 80's and 90's.  Take a day to tour by 4wd across the Moon Planes and see the beautiful Painted Desert; or maybe jump on a plane tour and fly over the largest cattle station in the world, Anna Creek,

(a Sydney Kidman property) and even further, the birdlife of Lake Eyre; and, not to mention,  take time to look up and see our desert skies at night which are amongst the best in the world. Our remote neighbouring towns of Oodnadatta and William Creek run yearly race, gymkhana and motorbike meetings as well as  the Australian Bronco Branding championships...... And that's just the beginning of things to explore in and around our remarkable town!
