Coober Pedy

Introduction of Coober Pedy

Coober Peddy, a small town in the outback in the north-central part of South Australia, is about 845km from Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, with a resident population of about 4,000.

Coober Peay, in Australia's driest region, used to be a barren patch, where opal (Opal, Auberg, Aussie gem, etc.) mines were found by chance in 1915, changing the life of the field. Today's Coober Peddy is the world's largest opal producing area, with more than 70 mines covering nearly 5,000 square kilometers, most of the world's opals, known as the world's Opal Capital of The World.

Since Coober Pedy is in the desert, with high temperatures and dry temperatures, especially in summer, often exceeding 40 degrees Celsius, many of its buildings have been built underground or caved in to avoid inland scorching temperatures, and the wealth of mining has allowed locals to build luxurious underground accommodation, many of the underground houses have swimming pools and game halls, and 80 per cent of the locals live underground, as well as churches, hotels and golf courses. Looking at the exterior, Coober Peddy doesn't have many facades, while underground are inhabited by thousands of residents and visitors, from hotels to restaurants, from churches to nightclubs. And Coober Peddy's name comes from the native native language," Cooper Pity," which means "white holes," aptly depicting the town.

If a word is used to describe Coober Peddy, then "scrap soil" must be the most appropriate. The town looked desolate, without the usual green, green lawns of australian towns, and the yellow sandy soil and caves were the main tone, driving around, seeing abandoned cars and mining equipment everywhere, and the thick smell of end-of-life wasteland filling the town. However, Coober Pedy is essentially a well-to-do town, where Auber Pedy and its tourists have made the economic unusually prosperous, and where many films have been taken in Coober Pedy because of its unique style, most famously the "Crazy: Beyond ", which was produced by Kennedy Miller Productions in 1985, and which is worth mentioning as the legendary Star in the 2000 film" PolyFilm Entertainment," which remains in the main town of Max.

An underground home in Coober Peddy is so cheap that a digger can dig out a five-bedroom luxury suite in a few days, because the climate is extremely dry and the holes aren't as wet as elsewhere, so the underground residents have very little arthritis, but the first-timers are likely to suffer from insomnia, as the walls of the basement are hard-blown blasted rock, and the grunting echoes will come up.
