Stay at the Opal Inn and Desert Cave in Coober Pedy

In partnership with the Opal Inn and Desert Cave, Coober Pedy.

Coober Pedy, in the heart of outback South Australia, is the opal capital of the world and exerts an overwhelming fascination for those who seek the world’s most colourful gemstone. Coober Pedy is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Desert Cave is known as quiet, cool, dark and airy, as the rooms are spacious with high ceilings. Most visitors say that sleeping underground gives them the best night’s sleep that they have ever had.

The Desert Cave Hotel won the South Australian Tourism Award for national standard accommodation in 1990 and 1991. It is an experience you won’t want to miss! 

For travellers, Coober Pedy offers a welcome and intriguing stopover in a unique, cosmopolitan town with underground homes, restaurants, shops, churches and walk-in underground mines.

The Opal Inn Hotel, Motel and Caravan Park in the centre of Coober Pedy has something for everyone with well-appointed secure accommodation, caravan and camping amenities (including laundry), plus a range of dining, bar and gaming facilities, and an on-site bottle shop.
