Welcome to Coober Pedy – South Australia

Welcome to the Opal Capital of the World! Aboriginals have long had ties to this area; however it wasn’t until 1915 that explorers actually discovered the precious minerals that lay beneath. Part way between Adelaide and Alice Springs is this quaint little mining town. This isn’t your typical mining town, however. A combination of mining culture and extreme temperatures has cultivated a very unique lifestyle in Coober Pedy.
