The District Council of Coober Pedy, Coober Pedy Visitor Information Centre & the Coober Pedy Retail Business & Tourism Association welcomes you to the Coober Pedy, "Opal Capital of the World", website.
Coober Pedy today relies as much on tourism as the opal mining industry to provide the community with employment and sustainability.
Coober Pedy has evolved in to one of the most unique places in Australia and perhaps the world. It is a cosmopolitan town with a population of 3,500 and over 45 different nationalities.
The relaxed and friendly lifestyle of the town has made it a breeding ground for cultural tolerance, diversity and acceptance.
There are authentic underground homes to explore as well as underground museums, opal shops, art galleries, underground churches and, of course, opal mines.
