Did you know?
Coober Pedy is famous for its underground hotels, and is also renowned for its below-ground residences, called "dugouts", which are built in this fashion due to the scorching daytime heat. The name "Coober Pedy" comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, which means "boys’ waterhole". The town is sometimes referred to as the "opal capital of the world" because of the quantity of precious opals that are mined there. (Wikipedia).
