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.

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.

A very unseal place. Lots of different items. Good for a laugh. Make sure you go in the day time as no lights.

A retreat from the pressures of modern life, and memorabilia about a most remarkable man. I presume he must have had a magnetic personality to have collected such a resume of comments and underwear in his own home. Eccentric and remarkable, all our friends talk about it as the highlight of their stay, so a must if you go to... More

Crocodile Harry's is a bit of a drive out of town but it's certainly the most unique underground home we've seen. Lots of quirky bits and pieces.
