About your hotel

Located in the harsh outback region of South Australia, Coober Pedy is recognised around the world as the largest producer of opals. In this opal mining outpost nearly half of the population lives underground to escape the high temperatures of the summer months. Coober Pedy is a fascinating, friendly place to visit, a must do on any outback adventure.

Offering guests the unique experience of dugout style living, the Desert Cave has both aboveground and underground guest rooms, shops and a bar. Visitors here have the choice to sleep underground where rooms are quiet, cool, dark and airy. Many have said it’s the best nights sleep they’ve ever had.


Rooms have TV with in-house movies, WiFi, mini bar, fridge and room service. Deluxe rooms are underground.
