We walked into the kitchen to the smell of the slow-cooker, which really added a homely touch. Greg the tour guide was a wealth of information on the interesting Faye and her friends.

Faye’s house is just a little gem. The story of Fay is very interesting as you hear about her life and what she achieved. Definitely worth a visit.

A must if you visit Coober Pedy is Faye's underground home and mine. An enthralling first time experience to witness the massive feat that Fay and her two friends achieved in building an underground house and to see how Opals were mined under trying conditions. The two tour operators are so dedicated and tell it as it was. We have no hesitation in recommending this tour.

We did the house and mine tour. It was fascinating to see the way people lived in the underground houses and to experience the opal mine. A highlight for us was learning about Faye herself. What a woman she was! The guide we had was excellent and it's well worth a visit.
