Faye's Underground Home, Coober Pedy

4.8
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. By using our Coober Pedy holiday builder site , you can arrange your visit to Faye's Underground Home and other attractions in Coober Pedy.
