Bought my Opal ring here. The lady provided the best service and the Opal was the nicest I found anywhere. It's a family business going back 40 years with the whole family still mining. The lady will be happy to tell you her story and she has photos to see.

this is must see. If you are a MadMax Fan then you can revisit the scenes from the movie. However the history with Crocodile Harry's hang out is a hoot and if you felt like it could spend hours reading the walls.

Well this underground house has to be seen to be believed. A little bit smutty but well worth having a look at how Harry lived.

Something different that's for sure. Harry's deceased but his character lives on in his cave home on the outskirts of town. Not really a tourist attraction more of a homage to an old rascal. If you go there talk to the custodian, many interesting stories and don't miss the cyrogenic sleep chamber out the back in one of the property's... More

Having met Harry when he was alive, I knew that he was a bit eccentric, but his home was a bit over the top. Not the sort of tourist attraction that would appeal to the more "gentile" tourist!

Called in as a after thought and did not want to leave, this is an amazing underground show room of tourist momentos , Harry's pictures describing what he had done through his life . A total miss match of everything that works so well it has to be a definite must do if visiting Coober Pedy. Tim is the man... More

This is not to everyone's taste, but certainly fits the setting of Coober Pedy. Gives an great insight to the characters that have called Coober Pedy home. We found it very interesting and different.

Not for me. A collection of caves loosely linked by the history of Harry whose sole claim to fame seems to be a 24 year long "party"
