The opal capital of the world. This town is right in the true blue outback of Australia. Located over 800km north of Adelaide and with a small population of around 1,700. Coober Pedy was put on the map due to its successful opal mining operations in the area and more recently has become a tourist destination due to the unique lifestyle the locals have. Due to the high temperatures, most shops and houses are built underground.
