  • Coober Pedy, South Australia, Two Cemeteries

    Cooper Pedy is a small opal mining town on the Stuart Highway in the north of South Australia. It is about 850km north of South Australia's capital, Adelaide. Despite many of Coober Pedy's 1,700 residents living in dug outs and underground, they have two cemeteries; the "First Cemetery" and the "Boot Hill" cemetery. The latter holds most interests for tourist and grey nomads due to the local characters buried in it and the many quirky headstones.
