Cheap Flights to Coober Pedy, Australia from New Zealand
Coober Pedy is far from the beach-loving image of Australia. It is the most barren part of the Aussie land. Coober Pedy is the “Opal Capital of the World” as the town is by far the biggest and with highest production of opal in the world. Mullock heaps which are waste from the opal mines adorn the town. Do not be disheartened. The place offers far more interesting sites unparalleled by any other place in the world.
The place is inhabited by almost less than 2000 people. However, a tourist will think of less as most people in Coober Pedy live underground! Most people live in refurbished old mines transformed into beautiful homes to avoid the scorching and lacerating heat of the sun all year round. Pay a visit to Fayes Underground Home that was built thirty years ago by three women using picks and shovel. Coober Pedy derived its name from Aboriginal word “Kupa Piti”, which means “whiteman’s hole”. This describes the fad of people living in a dug-out.
The life and tourism of Coober Pedy heavily relies on opal mining. Pay a visit to different stores of opal and some mines transformed into a museum and tourist destination. It is worth to pay a visit at Old Timers Mine. Stay at the Coober Pedy’s flashiest accommodation at Desert Cave, which offers underground accommodations as well as underground bar and gaming room. The place also features memorabilia and a display gallery of the town’s history.
Visit Coober Pedy now and find out how life is so exciting and enjoyable at this barren land.
