What people are saying:

Coober Petty is not a scenic place, but it has the most unique "dungeon" in Australia. Opals were discovered in Cooberpeace in 1915, and now 95% of Australia's Opals are produced here. The miners gathered here quickly discovered that living in a cool underground can escape the hot summer. Visitors can also get this experience by choosing a variety of accommodations, some of which provide underground rooms. There is no plane to reach this town. The Stewart Desert Highway, which has been scorched by the heat waves all year round, is the only way to visit this town. The nearest city is more than 500 kilometers away. It is also the only way to reach Uluru Rock, the center of the Australian desert. the road. So don’t be surprised if there are tourists here, everyone will pass by. This is also the only underground city in Australia. It is one of the driest places in Australia. It was originally a barren land where birds were too lazy to land. In 1915, someone accidentally discovered an opal mine here, which changed the fate of this wasteland ever since. Opal, commonly known as Opal, is mainly used to make a variety of jewelry. Ordinary opal is not valuable, but the best product is priceless. Fortunately, Coober Petty's opal is not only the best of the best, but also has a surprisingly large amount of opal. The news spread like wildfire, and naturally attracted Taobao people from all over the world.
