Coober Pedy

In the mining city Coober Pedy at least half of the population lives underground just to escape from the high temperatures during the summer. It's so fascinating that you really have to take a look around this town for yourself. Coober Pedy is the only place where you'll find underground hotels, restaurants, bars, an underground church and a gold course without grass.

Uluru is Australia's most recognisable natural icon. Standing 348 metres high, the monolith has great cultural significance for the traditional Aboriginal owners, the Anangu people.
