Our favourite place for dining was the Big Winch 360 with a wide variety on the menu. The food was delicious too. Our favourite places were the Breakaways which we visited twice in our three days stay. This was by far the highlight of our visit. We also visited the following exciting places: 1. Underground Serbian Ortgodox church 2. Underground Catholic Church 3. Old Timers Mine 4. Umoona Opal Mine and Museum It is very easy to get around Coober Pedy
Underground experience for families. Both self guided & guided mine tours available according to budget. Tom’s working mine tour is a must for families with kids. Enjoyed 360 sunset dinner. Be prepared to handle friendly flies…
We had a great tour with Noble Tours. Very informative, different locations, spectacular views. Our Wrightsair trip to Painted Hills, Lake Eyre and William Creek was amazing, mind blowing. Outback Bar and Grill - a roadhouse with delicious food breakfast, lunch or early dinner. The staff very friendly and accommodating. 360 Winch restaurant was great for a lazy Sunday afternoon lunch and drink. We walked to a few of the sights in town eg Umoona Mine and Opalis, plus the IGA.
It's a town that you can't see enough of in one day but I wouldn't spend more than a couple of nights. There is so much local history to soak up and a bounty of tours and attractions. I highly recommend John's Pizza Bar for food and the Old Timers Mine for a good experience of mining and 'dugout' living. The Breakaways were closed due to rain during our visit, so we only checked out the Moon Plain and the Dog fence. The town is easy enough to navigate with some of the smaller roads feeling very informal.
It looked as though it was built in the 50's and no one has bothered to do anything since. Everything looks drab and uncared for. There was one relatively new looking accommodation, but the rest looked ordinary. Surprised by how many tourists were there. Wondered if I was missing something but I could not find it. I went on some advice to try an underground hotel which I did. Overall expensive accommodation. My advice would be to bypass it.
Coober Pedy is weird and wacky to say the least. It's an amazing place and great to visit for a few days - make time to visit the Kanku Breakaways National Park - especially at sunset as the colours change and it looks magnificent! Remeber to pay your entry fee to the Park $9 concession - can be purchased at the town visitor center. We enjoyed the Big Winch bar / restaurant very much.
Splendid location. We were welcomed by Irene and Mike who showed us around and gave us good advice on sightseeing. The house was large and airy and well-designed and if you want the full Coober Pedy experience of underground living, this is a perfect example. It is just outside town, so you get an amazing view of the Breakaways. We could literally dance under the stars and this is the most amazing sky in the daytime and at even more so at night. The breakfast was left in the fridge and cupboards for us and was very nice too.
Wow how stunning! Feels like you’re walking into the flinstones house then smacked with gorgeous modern interior mixed with the uniqueness of the underground! The host was super easy to communicate with, the cleaners do an unreal job- seriously spotless place not a spec of dust or dirt. If you know Coober Pedy, that’s damn near impossible! Super cosy, warm, beautiful interior and location was fantastic. Honestly the value for money is insane! My pup and I enjoyed our stay very much, I wish we booked for longer!
Excellent property which I would highly recommend to anyone passing through or staying in Coober Pedy. An absolutely beautiful place underground and extremely spacious with a very good vibe to the place. All areas were clean and overall a very pleasant experience- excellent value for money in my opinion.
Location was convenient. Room had high ceiling, so it felt more spacious. Unique experience in a cave hotel. You can do a self guided tour underground. Enjoyed sleeping in complete darkness!
Very friendly staff who gave us lots of information in regards what to see in Coober Pedy. Lovely spacious underground room with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Good wifi.
Location was great. Was cool to be staying underground. Enjoyed reading the booklet left out by the host about the history of herself and the cottages,
Great for the whole underground experience which is one of the reasons you stay in Coober Pedy. Surprisingly roomy! Communication was excellent.
A great experience to stay underground and look through the hotel. The staff were lovely.
