Coober Pedy

recommendation by miryam-sh

We passed through Coober Pedy on our way to Alice Springs. The inhabitants are in the mining business. They live underground, converted the holes they dug to find opal in cool homes because the heat outside is unbearable.
There was junk everywhere (metal, furniture, etc).
This city was also a movie set and around town, you can see remains from the movies "Mad Max 3" or "Pitch Black". It was also the home of Crocodile Harry, the guy who inspired the movies "Crocodile Dundee". Around is desert.
