11 June 2007 – Coober Pedy

We went on a tour of Coober Pedy and our guide host was Rudy, a 72 year old ex miner who has lived in Coober Pedy for the past 36 years.Our tour included visits to an underground church, the Coober Pedy Golf Club (the rules are not to walk on the grass – there is NO grass), an underground mine and residence and a noodling area.

After the tour we did our own local tour revisiting the noodling area (without luck) and visiting a local residence that is like an open house.  The residence, known as Faye’s Underground Home is managed by Colin & June Maclean.  Colin knows our home suburb very well as his brother lives two streets away from us.  We took some pictures and agreed to pass them on to Colin’s brother.Colin also gave us a piece of local rock (called rainbow rock) that we can sand into shape.

We were actually grounded to some degree today as we ran out of cash and were unable to find a CBA ATM machine to allow access to the credit union account.  A long weekend did not help and we had to transfer funds to our CBA account that is accessible from Westpac ATM’s.

We had dinner out at a local Pizza restaurant (charged it).
