Reviews of Coober Pedy, SA

"Worth experiencing"

Coober Pedy is not for everyone, but will make a lasting impression on everyone who visits. This little country town in the middle of nowhere is a great place to come and work and save some coin but also a great place to get involved in community and give back. It’s also a great place to start a small business as there are holes in the market waiting to be filled. With its unique history and landscape the town is what you make it.
Coober Pedy is known as the most multicultural community in Australia, I think this is something to be celebrated. The immersion of different cultures is an enriching experience to really see Australia for what it really is - different people coming together and making it home.
Coober Pedy is a fantastic place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and get back what it’s really about - family. This is a great place to raise a family, with its tight nit community and quintessential Aussie outback town heart of helping others.

"great place to drink and hang out with the crew!"

Drunks up and down the street day and night, some of them unconsious, stray dogs with desease running up and down the street, every house - shop - pub has steel bars on it, even the street lights have steel mesh on them. Survelance cameras on every street light, coupled with very dry hospitality from the locals, all shopping must be ordered online via air freight. All this with 50c heat 6 months a year what can you say

Great for

  • Always have someone to drink with on the street
  • Dont have to mow your lawn
  • Dont need to go to the pound to claim unwanted pet

Not great for

  • Beer garden of hotel is fully enclosed with steel mesh
  • Lots of police
  • Weapons are against the law unfortunately

"Absolutely unique and the most interesting place in Austrralia."

I love Cooper Pedy. Spent some great times here. My wife Angela's uncle Peter
( Known to the locals as "Black Peter" Passed away ) Greek Born, yet always outdoors mining and outdoors, thus a very deep tan. "Black Peter" was one of the fortune seekers who went to dig for opal. A great town with many friendly and interesting characters and the nicest people you could ever meet. There is a Greek Hall built, great opal shopping, and a lovely place as a must visit and stay for a few days, or a few more days to ad, just to gain that inspirational feeling, how living in a town full of interesting people and history with such a lovely atmospehere, in the middle desert really feels like. The air is so clean the stars look like lights in the heavens. Yes , no flicker. Amazing !

We went to a local party and there out the back yard under the stars there was a huge leg of cow being basted. What happened to the simple souvlaki, or steak on the barbie ?

A great place with many nationalities that warm together to make Cooper Pedy one of the most interesting places in Australia.

Absolutely awesome and a must visit place.

"Coober Pedy"

Nice place for a family holiday. Don't think i would like to live there as it is pretty hot. But otherwise nice to visit. People there are very friendly

"The opal capital of Australia"

Nice place to visit, but don't expect to see any grass. Its hot and dry out there and there is even a motel that is built underground to beat the heat. Some of the houses are also built underground as well.

"A hot and dry place in the middle of the desert"

Coober Pedy, in the heart of the desert, is situated more than 800 kilometres from Adelaide. With a population of less than 2,000 people, it is a quiet town that forms the gateway to other desert towns like Oodnadatta and William Creek.

Once a thriving mining town, Coober Pedy is mostly a tourist destination or stopover for those on their way up to Alice Springs.

Travelling to Coober Pedy is quite smooth, with sealed roads and daily coaches. The Ghan (the train that travels from Adelaide to Darwin) also stops here.

Living in Coober Pedy is challenging due to the scorching temperatures. Many of the houses are underground to escape the blistering heat. It is hot and dry, and you need to travel quite a distance for anything more than the basics offered in the town's main street.
