If you don't have a car you have to walk or find a local (thanks to the lovely lady who took mum & I, you know who you are) that may take you there as there is no bus or taxi out to Harry's dugout....More

Its a pity Harry is not still here. He must have been a real Character. His dugout is a crazy, wonderful reminder of what Coober Pedy must have been like in its heyday.

Crocodile Harry is a very interesting place with a very interesting picture story to follow on the walls. Highly recommended

Interesting for a few minutes, depends on your sense of humour. Not sure if the $7 honesty entrance fee was a joke but paid it anyway. A bit hard to find the road as it says no entrance due to unexploded mines!

Such an interesting place! Glad that I googled his story first, as that was the only thing that let it down... There is really nothing that explains his history and how he came to be who he was! So much to look at and imagine...More

A truly amazing place ( home ) to visit . It is easy to understand the concept of this man being the original crocodile hunter inspiring the Crocodile Dundee movies.
