Coober Pedy is a town in northern South Australia, located on the Stuart Highway 846 kilometers north of Adelaide. Because of the large quantity of precious opals mined there, the town is often referred to as the "opal capital of the world." The town of Coober Pedy is known for its underground dwellings, known as "dugouts," which were constructed in this manner to avoid the scorching daytime sun.
The town constructs homes and hotels underground to stay cool during the day. The Desert Cave Hotel and the Lookout Cave Underground Motel are the two most famous places to stay.

In the summer, temperatures can reach 35 to 45 degrees, driving more than half of the town's residents underground, where temperatures remain lower.
