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 .

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"

It was an interesting place to look at but I don't know if I would go out of my way to see it. Certainly there was a very different place with a range of underwear hanging all over the place.

So totally different to anything l have ever seen. Harry must have had a great sense of humour. To see all of this will take some time, walk around the dug out also WELL WORTH IT

What a fascinating place this is, full of bizarre and interesting bits, pieces and art and personal memorabilia of Harry, the original crocodile hunter before Dundee and the many people who must have been there for the party that went on for 20 years, I recognized the parts that were used in the Mad Max movies, and what a ladies...

I took photos outside of the statues, garden etc. It was fascinating to see the granite carved statues, all the different furniture, old vehicles, and other collections
