Desert Cave Hotel in Coober Pedy, South Australia, is well-suited for those who want to experience living below-ground. Coober Pedy is a town famous for its underground residences. It is referred as the “Opal Capital of the World” because of the opals mined in the area. To beat the scorching daytime heat, the residents built below-ground shelters called “dugouts” in the abandoned opal mines.
This unique kind of shelter became famous worldwide. In order for tourists to experience the same living conditions, Desert Cave Hotel offers dugout style living, dining, shops, bar and opal display areas perfect for a memorable stay in the Australian outback. The hotel also offers guests a range of specialised tours around the spectacularly jagged outback.
