    Interesting place to visit, especially when on a guided tour, such as Noble Tours. You get more information about the area when on a guided tour.

    Was interesting to see .the three ladies that built the house must have been amazing to have dug out the underground house by hand

    Great set up, interesting facts, nice opals and things for sale. Great for kids too as there are two noodling boxes to find opal chips.

    Very interesting and unique displays not encountered anywhere else in Coober Pedy. Learnt a lot here, even though it was one of the last spots visited during our stay.

    A remarkable place carved out of the surrounding hillside. Well worth the visit - stunning photo opportunities.

    Excellent artwork and opal viewed and purchased. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about Coober Pedy, it's surrounds and history.

    A different style of structure compared to the underground Serbian Church, worth a look if you have time.

    10 min out of town you’ll find Harrys house. He passed years ago but apparently he was the inspiration for crocodile Dundee. His underground house has loads of eccentric art inside and out. Fairly exciting guy and I think you’ll find it quite interesting place to visit. $7 each adult honesty box

    Just like a Catholic Church but underground. Very well done and well worth a visit. The map was a bit confusing but it is in the Main Street.

    It's just a fence BUT what an amazing one stretching for so many kilometres over some to the unkindest country in the world and constructed with wire netting held together with all kinds of fastenings on mainly twisted wooden posts. The vision of the graziers who instigated it was impressive as is the ongoing maintenance of such an extensive structure.

    Yep, the Big Miner is a great photo opp but the real gems are inside. And I’m not just talking about opals. Husband and wife team, down to earth, unique jewellery made onsite and great value.

    The spaceship is looking a bit worse for wear, but then it was designed and built to last the filming of the movie, and given the harsh conditions is holding up well considering. It's still pretty cool to see what a movie prop looks like having seen the movie. It is hard to miss passing in the main street and car parking to stop and take photos is easy to do.

    Interesting displays and available information. The one staff member on duty was very helpful in pointing out where we wanted to go. More staff needed there as he was very busy coping with all the visitors.

    Some interesting displays outside and inside. Unfortunately the surround video system wasn't working at the time we visited.
