Introduction of Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy is a small town in the north-central interior of South Australia, about 845 kilometers from Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, and has a resident population of about 4000.

Coober Pedy, located in the driest part of Australia, was originally a barren land. In 1915, someone accidentally discovered opal (also known as Opal, Abel, Australian gemstones, etc.) here, and changed the number of lives of the field. Coober Pedy is now the largest opal producing area in the world, with more than 70 mines covering nearly 5000 square kilometers. Most of the opal in the world is produced here, known as (Opal Capital of The World), the capital of Aobao in the world.

Because Coober Pedy is located in the desert, the temperature is high and dry, especially in summer, often more than 40 degrees Celsius, in order to avoid the burning temperature in the interior, many of the buildings here are built underground or dig caves, the wealth brought to the local people during the mining period allows them to build a variety of luxury underground dwellings, many underground house is also equipped with swimming pools and game halls. Eighty percent of the locals live underground, churches, hotels and golf courses are also underground, so Coober Pedy is also known as an "underground city." On the outside, there are not many buildings on the surface of, Coober Pedy, but there are thousands of residents and famous tourists living underground, from hotels to restaurants, from churches to nightclubs. Coober Pedy's name comes from the local aboriginal language "Cooper Pity", which means "white hole", which aptly describes the characteristics of the town.

If you use a word to describe Coober Pedy, then "waste soil" must be the most appropriate. The town looks desolate, not as green and green as the Australian town, where the yellow sand and caves are the main tone, driving around, with abandoned cars and mining equipment everywhere, and the smell of leftover waste soil flooding the town. However, Coober Pedy is actually a very rich town. Aobao and famous tourists have made economic extremely prosperous here. Because of its unique amorous feelings, many movies have been photographed on Coober Pedy, the most famous of which is "Crazy Max: beyond thunderbolt" (Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome), produced by Kennedy Miller film production company (Kennedy Miller Productions) in 1985. In addition, it is worth mentioning that the huge starship props used in the interstellar Legend (Pitch Black), produced by (PolyGram Filmed Entertainment), an American Polaroid Film Entertainment Company, are still on the main street of the city and become a small town.

The underground safety of the Cober Pedy is very cheap, a 5-bedroom luxury suite can be dug in a few days because the climate is extremely dry and the ground hole is not as wet as elsewhere, so the underground population has little arthritis, It's just that people who live in the basement are likely to suffer from insomnia, because the four walls of the basement are hard to eject, and the hula will start to resell.
