Faye’s Underground Home And Opal Mine

Agri, Mining and Industry Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Located in a beautiful desert garden, is Faye’s famous Underground Home. The original one room home housed the first mail truck driver over sixty years ago. It was converted by Faye Nayler and two other women, using only picks and shovels, into a kitchen and bedroom. Later five other rooms were added including a wine cellar and a swimming pool. Unlike a number of display homes in town, Faye’s Underground Home is actually lived in. The occupiers will be happy to show you the advantages of dugout living in the extreme Coober Pedy environment.
