Introduction of Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy is a small town in the north-central part of South Australia, about 845km by car from Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, with a permanent population of about 4000 people.

Coober Pedy is rich in opal (Opal, Opel, Australian gemstones, etc.), is the world's largest opal production area, surrounding more than 70 mines covering nearly 5000 square kilometers, the majority of the world's opals are produced here, It is known as (Opal Capital of The World), the capital of Australian treasures in the world. Because Coober Pedy is located in desert areas, where temperatures are high and dry, especially in the summer, often more than 40 degrees Celsius, many of the buildings are built underground or dug into caves to avoid the scorching temperatures in the interior. The wealth brought to the locals during the mining period allowed them to build luxury underground dwellings, many with swimming pools and playrooms, where 80 per cent of the locals live underground, churches, and so on. Hotels and golf courses are also underground, so Coober Pedy is also known as an underground city. From the outside, there are not many, Coober Pedy surface buildings, but there are thousands of residents and tourists from hotels to restaurants, from churches to nightclubs, and there are thousands of people living in the ground, from hotels to restaurants, and from churches to nightclubs.

If you use a word to describe Coober Pedy, then "waste soil" must be the most appropriate. The town looks desolate, without the green mountains, green trees and lawns commonly seen in Australia, where the yellow sand and caves are the main tone, drifting around, and abandoned cars and mining equipment can be seen everywhere. The smell of the end-of-life waste is full of small towns. However, Coober Pedy is in essence a very wealthy town, with Aobao and tourists coming to make the economy extremely prosperous, and because of its unique customs, there are many films that have taken their sights in Coober Pedy. The most famous is (Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome), produced in 1985 by (Kennedy Miller Productions), a film production firm by Kennedy Hans Muller. "Crazy Max: beyond the Thunderbolt." It is also worth mentioning that the giant starship props used in (Pitch Black), produced by Polarkin Pictures and Entertainment Company (PolyGram Filmed Entertainment) in 2000, remain on the main street of the city and become a small town scene.

Setting up a home underground in Coober Pedy is very cheap, and a excavator can dig out a five-bedroom luxury suite in a few days, because the climate is so dry that the caves are not as damp as elsewhere, so the underground residents rarely get arthritis. Only those who first live underground are likely to suffer from insomnia, because the walls of the basement are hard rock spurts, whining and snoring will give rise to earth-shaking echoes.
