Coober Pedy Tour Ideas
The Great Victoria Desert is one of Australia's hidden treasures - a vast sand dune and sand plain desert - the largest in Australia. Its area is shared equally by the States of South and Western Australia, north of the Nullarbor Plain and south of the Musgrave Ranges, and is bounded on the west by Laverton and the goldfields and to the east by Mabel Creek Station due west of Coober Pedy and the Stuart Highway.
Visit Coober Pedy's Historic Old Timers Mine, voted South Australia's best tourist attraction in 2011. Explore the 1916 opal mine, historic museum and underground home. Watch the mining machine demonstrations, visit the opal showroom and look for your own opal in the noodling pit, and see how the Old Timers in Coober Pedy lived and worked. This is a family affordable and educational experience, one you will not forget.
