A great stopping point for a journey to Uluru. There are quite a few things to stop and see here, but most of them seems a bit drab and dated.
In part because this small Australian town grew out of an opal mining operation, but also because summertime temperatures can climb above 120 degrees F, many locals actually live underground. Not only that, but much of town life also takes place underground. Visitors can check out art galleries and a church, as well as shop for opals and even stay overnight, all under several layers of dirt.
If the Apocalypse happens, this southern outback outpost will be ready: half of its 4,000 locals live underground, a vestige of a post-World War I opal mining boom that saw newly arrived solider-prospectors sleeping in dugouts. That and daytime temps in excess of 120 degrees. (Coober Pedy takes its name from the Aboriginal phrase for “white man in a hole.” Seriously.) Stay in an underground hotel and explore restaurants, art galleries, and a church, all below grade. Venture outdoors to play a round of grassless golf and see desert landscapes made famous in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Pitch Black.
It's not much to look at but you don't come to Coober Pedy for the views; you come for the opal. You won't have to look far to find them as every opal dealer is sandwiched between two others.
