Social Studies: Coober Pedy - Live underground?


An Underground Hotel Room at the Desert Cave Hotel


Coober Pedy
is a town in northern South Australia, 846 kilometres north of Adelaide on the Stuart Highway. At the 2006 census its population was 1,916 (1,084 males, 832 females, including 268 indigenous Australians). The town is known as the opal capital of the world because of the quantity of precious opals that are mined there. The name 'Coober Pedy' comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, which means "boys' waterhole".
