Things To See and Do

A couple of friends of mine and I will be in Coober Pedy in November, and have planned to do a tour, either Desert Cave Town Tour or Radeka's Desert Breakaways Tour. Would one be recommended over the other? We are thinking on doing The Old Timers Mine. The tour is 4 hours, and I'm wondering what are other "must sees" in the area. We will have a car, and will be there for one full day.

Thanks so much for any help!

Yep, I think the golf course is the same. You need a patch of fake grass to take along to put the ball on. The 'greens' aren't green, but oiled sand I think.

The Coober Pedy golf course is hilarious. Sand and oil, exactly like the golf course we had in Saudi Arabia. There's even a sign saying ' Keep off the Grass'. It's a hoot, all the more so as it supposedly is the only golf course in the world that has reciprocal playing rights with St Andrews. Truth or fiction? I have no idea.
