Enjoyed the personal touch of this underground home which was excavated for the most part by hand. The furnishings are still the original as decorated by Faye

Great piece of Australia history. The story of an enterprising young Melbourne women, who from nothing, created her own dug out home and established herself as a true pioneer here in Coober Pedy. Our experience was enhanced by a informative guided tour at a very reasonable price.

Great insight into Coober's past and present. A passionate and knowledgable couple showed us round the house and mine. Full of information, succinct, and interesting.

Interesting to hear the history of this underground home and view the rooms. It wasn't a hot day when we visited - I'm sure it would be a lovely respite from the summer heat. We don't think the wine in the cellar would be great to drink tho'. The last room was not expected - would be great in summer.

The lovely couple who showed us around Faye's Underground Home were really knowledgeable and certainly knew their stuff. It was one of the best tourist places we visited in Coober. And for only $5 entry fee P/P great value.
