Coober Pedy, Opal Mining Town

We stayed in Coober Pedy on our way down to Adelaide.
Coober Pedy is an opal mining town. It gets very hot
(45+C in the summers, 110+F), so many of the houses
and hotels are underground. The kids were really excited
to do some noodling of their own. They had great luck
in the museum noodling pit, but not quite as much luck
in the public noodling area.
