Get back to nature and camp underground
If you love the great outdoors, getting back to nature and camping, I have an entirely new experience to share with you.
What about camping underground. No, I'm not talking about some dusty, dirty cave. I'm talking about really nice clean camping but all underground.
Welcome to Riba's Underground Camping and Tourist Park In Coober Pedy.
Bring along a tent and drive or walk into the large underground campground and pitch your tent somewhere. Just keep in mind it is stone underground and you may need a drill to get in your tent pegs in and certainly a foam mat to sleep on.
They have powered and unpowered sites available and a range of budget underground rooms. It is especially quiet underground so you will sleep peacefully, keep in mind it is dark and therefore an alarm clock to tell you what time of the day it is will be handy.
Riba's also offer a comprehensive evening mine tour and as a special offer, your first night of camping is free if you make a booking with them for the tour. Riba's is located on the right hand side of the road, before you arrive in Coober Pedy if you are coming from Adelaide.
You will see the sign as you arrive and you need to go up a dirt road to get there.
I was a teacher at Coober Pedy in 1965 and 1966. I lived in an Education Dept dugout with no electricity or running water. In those years there were only 3 or 4 shops in the town- Beppis, Brewsters and Traegers. Don Field had small clothing store. and the road south to Pt Augusta was unsealed. Brendan McGuire
