Old Timers Mine - Coober Pedy

This mine is now a tourist attraction and you can go down it and experience what it is like to mine opals, the only difference is that this mine has lights so that you can see everything in front of you and behind you. All the pipes sticking out of the ground are for ventilation. In Coober Pedy these pipes are everywhere and sometimes that is the only way of knowing that someone is living there.
