What a fantastic experience to see this wonderful woman’s home and mine. Three bedroom home underground shown exactly as she left it. Complete with kitchen, lounge plus indoor swimming pool. Faye was such an inspirational woman and with two other ladies built this wonderful home. For an extra small amount do the mine tour which they worked. Wink wink the tour guide hints Faye found heaps of Opal. They then recommend the Opal Cave which Faye also dug our and made a successful business. Need her life story made into a movie.

To think this underground home was hand dug by 3 women in the 60's & 70's was mind-blowing. The home is as Faye left it all those years ago with original furnishings and decor. Following a brief history given to us by Grant, the property caretaker, we were able to walk through at our leisure. We were offered a tour of Faye's mine on the property at a small additional cost. Well worth it. Grant's commentary was informative and gave a great understanding of what this amazing lady achieved during her time in Coober Pedy. Would highly recommend it!

Sign saying ‘closed’ when we popped by and two dogs obviously not happy with our presence jumping at the car.

This is a treasure - if you’re limited with time you can learn about the history of the town, the life of anan intrepid adventurer, and have atour of her mine. This has the lot, conducted by Grant, who knew Faye personally.
