Known as the opal capital of the world, Coober Pedy is a unique landscape with many hidden surprises. Your stopover will see you spending the night in an old opal mine, which has been converted to an underground motel. Situated 10 metres below ground level, the underground motel will give you a welcome break from the scorching heat in both summer and winter. It truly is amazing, and who knows, you may even find your own opal.
