Hey everyone!! I am going to be in Coober Pedy in about 4 or 5 days and was hoping someone could pass along their #1 place to stay!! We want to definitly stay underground, not too expensive (no more than150/night) and just unique??? Any ideas??
Hi Kylie. I remember one of my good vt mates Anne12 travelled up through the centre of Australia so I looked up her page here -

Also, check out the other pages on Coober Pedy here on vt. There's nothing like first hand advice from all our friends here on vt :o)
Have fun!! Cheers, Ann.
Many years ago I stayed with friends in Coober Pedy who lived underground. Those days only the school teacher's house was above ground and looked strangely out of place. Went back again last year but didn't stay. Was amazed at just how big the place has grown, but nearly all above ground. It's certainly changed its character. There were a few places advertising underground accomodation or touring. They had an information centre there as well. If you googled you'd probably find they have a web site with all you want to know.
