Was well worth the visit with just a donation tin entrance fee. Some well designed underground living quarters. Once again people from all over the world have left their mark which makes for some interesting viewing aswell as Harry's love for the female form. Worth the short trip out to see.

Only a few mins on good gravel road from Coober Pedy. Quirky & bizarre dugout & interesting artifacts, used in underground scenes of "Mad Max-Beyond the Thunderdome", movie. No one else there when we visited. Honesty box $5 fee ea. Ok to browse around, take few pics, but not worth $5 ea.

A second look after some years. Now run down, dark and gloomy. No one in attendance. Not worth the drive out.

Visited the other day and this place is beyond strange, really creepy. Everything is left as it was there was no one there, just a deserted cave full of junk, photographs people's signatures, it's impressive don't get me wrong but the place left me feeling uneasy!

Not for everyone, however quirky and interesting. Great to see alternative uses of materials. Hint: take a torch as some parts can be very dark

Go there as part of a tour or it is an easy short drive from the Main Street. There was no one present but signs point you in the right direction. Crocodile Harry was a unique character in Coober Pedy. I imagine he was the role model for Crocodile Dundee as he caught crocs in NT before moving to Coober... More

This was an interesting place with plenty of history to see, if you could see it properly. There was no lighting and no-one in attendance. Needs a spruce up but worth a look considering the entry cost is by donation.
