Zoomed out view of the Coober Pedy sign standing on a hill close to the town

Coober Pedy is truly one of Australia's most unique and quirky towns. Half the residents of this opal-mining town live underground to escape the hot temperatures in summer and stay cosy in winter. Only in Coober Pedy will you find underground churches and art galleries, plus a golf course without a blade of grass. The amazing sandstone landforms - The Breakaways - are a short drive north of the town.
