An eccentric dugout owned by the infamous Coober Pedy resident, Crocodile Harry.The walls of the dugout are covered with messages from tourist all over the world, and the place is filled with bizarre or strange artifacts that you could spend looking at wondering what the story is behind those things.Crocodile Harry's nest was also featured in the movie Mad Max...

I accidentally found out about the Crocodile's Nest and it's long departed owner while surfing the internet for attractions in Coober Pedy. What I had read, sparked a spot of interest in seeing something a little out of the ordinary. Harry must of been a real character, his dugout is filled with all sorts of bits and pieces he had...

Harry was a remarkable man, intriguingly charismatic. Loved by women all over the world. His home is like a museum, filled with his sublime sculptures. His eclectic style oozes, I felt like I met him after experiencing his most intimate space. Out of all experiences this was my most favoured, I learnt where he was from, who he was, how... More

We had no idea what we were heading out to see, and when we got there, it certainly wasn't anything like I could have dreamed up. weird, eclectic, interesting are just a few descriptions of this place, you have to see it to believe it.

Was a bit spooky ..all deserted and the owner long gone. Looks like it had its hey day in the 1980s when mad max was all the rage. Trusting souls leaving the honesty plate exposed like that.

After reading several negative reviews I ummed and ahh-ed over visiting Crocodile Harry's. In the end we called in anyway and are so glad we did. Entry fee is via an honesty system, there had to have been someone there but they never made themselves known or present so we were able to look at our leisure without someone breathing... More
