Faye's Underground Home, Coober Pedy

(220+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
At Faye's Underground Home, take a peek into the Hobbit-like existence of Coober Pedy residents. Inhabitants of the opal-mining town beat the South Australian heat by building their homes beneath the Earth's surface. With its small indoor pool, fully-furnished kitchen, fireplace (for winter heating), and comfortably furnished rooms you'll find Faye's home particularly sophisticated. Faye no longer lives here, but the current couple residing in her home has opened it to the public. Take a tour from them for a small fee, and listen to the history of the town and Faye's ingenious little home. The house's location underground moderates its temperature year-round, so you should be comfortable whenever you visit. Our Coober Pedy travel itinerary planner makes visiting Faye's Underground Home and other Coober Pedy attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Faye has gone but the volunteers are doing great. its a must see of how they all lived in Coober Pedy. Faye was also a mainstay of the town.  more »
  • Faye's underground home and the history behind it is very interesting. Dug out by three women; it's an impressive effort.  more »
  • Very knowledgeable and friendly couple, full of information in regard to the history attached to the site, not rushed or hurried during the tours, recommend both tours very reasonable price  more »
