Tourism - Coober Pedy, SA

Unique opal mining town in outback South Australia.

Opal was first found in Coober Pedy on 1 February 1915. Since then, Coober Pedy has been supplying the world with the majority of gem quality opal.

Coober Pedy today relies as much on tourism as the opal mining industry to provide the community with employment and sustainability.

Coober Pedy has evolved into one of the most unique places in Australia and perhaps the world. It's a cosmopolitan town with a population of 3,500 and over 45 different nationalities.
