A wacky slant on a mainly underground town
Upon arriving in Coober Pedy, it seems like such a small town with on one hand, so many things to do and on the other, nothing much apparent above the surface.
The Desert Cave experience is a half day tour which will bring you in touch with the amazing outback characters of Coober Pedy, whilst awakening you to a lifestyle which is different to anywhere else on earth.
Due to the requests of the tourists, our tour was done in reverse to the usual manner. Hence we started in the town and then made our way further outback.
We visited the Serbian church, one of the world's only underground churches. It was really beautiful and quite fascinating to see how the drills had dug up the roof in round shapes.
We travelled right around the town with our guide, Ned, who told us about the history, including dishing a little bit of dirt on some locals' dirty laundry.
We visited the Umoona Museum and cave; a fascinating underground home - it was a delight to see how comfortable the locals can live underground. Forget the dusty dugouts, these homes had carpets, lights, running water and gorgeous bedrooms.
