Living underground in the Australian Outback
 
05:17
There's a treasure hunt going on in Coober Pedy, Australia, where opal was discovered a hundred years ago. As much as 80 percent of the world's opal supply comes from Coober Pedy's mines. But with summertime temperatures soaring to 120 degrees, the town features hundreds of "dug out" homes, burrowed into the rock and naturally cooled. Seth Doane explores the underground town, complete with bar, beauty salon, bookstore and hotel.

The World’s Strangest Underground Town in Australia
 
03:40
You wouldn’t quite believe it until you saw it. Today, we will take you to the moon, where you will view (with your own eyes) a bizarre moonscape comprising thousands of deep dark holes. Just joking! This is not the moon, this is White Cliffs. This is Australia mate! Set in the middle of nowhere (1100km north-west of Sydney) this dot of a town has a rich opal mining history dating back to the 1800’s. So much so, the landscape comprises thousands of hillocks of earth, dug and discarded in their quest to strike it rich, to find the mighty opal stone. And would you know it, some smart fella (probably a kiwi) decided that the best place to live was in these holes. Crikey! In this otherworldly destination, most of its 100 residents live underground, to escape the heat and the wild kangaroos that roam the outback. Is this the world’s most unusual town?

There’s a whole town in Australia that lives underground

On the surface, the place looks pretty deserted. With just a few hotels and, randomly, a golf course dotted around, the place has the air of an abandoned town. In fact, around 3,500 people live there. It’s just that most of them (60 per cent) live below the surface – in homes burrowed out of caves. ​Source: http://metro.co.uk Read here:http://helenastales.weebly.com/blogue/theres-a-whole-town-in-australia-that-lives-underground Follow us on facebook:https://www.facebook.com/ufo.maniaII/ ufo, ufos, ovni, ovnis, ufo videos, ufo footage, ufo news, real ufo, real ufos, ufo evidence, UFO Sightings, extratterestrial, НЛО, ufo 2018, extraterrestrial life, alien news, flying saucer, ufo sightings, are aliens real, ufology, ufo documentary, alien ufo moon, top ten, list, lists, top 5, top five, technology, science, caught, real, moon, planet, best, space, series, science fiction, proof, camera, truth, strange, paranormal, Legend, horror, horror stories, supernatural, poltergeist, ghost, ghost detector, paranormal activity, haunted, real ghost, ghost hunters, ghost videos, ghosts, Fantasma, Geist alien, aliens, real aliens, real alien, alien interview, alien interview part 2, entertainment, the space, Extraterrestrials, alive alien, universe, Extraterrestrial Life, Alien Life, Proof of aliens, signs of aliens, alien footage, galaxy, alien sightings, space aliens, gray aliens UFOUFOsovniovnisНЛОalienaliensnloufo 2018 ufos 2018 ovnis 2018 nlo 2018 НЛО 2018 ovni 2018 tr3b strange, weather, warning, events, all, over, the, world, storm, thunder, lightning, tornado, rain, inundación terremoto,disaster, weird, def, earthquake (disaster type), flood (disaster type), eruption, 2017, ww3, extraterrestrial, ufo, ovni,strange sounds, space sounds, sounds, mysterious sounds, mystery sounds,deslizamiento de tierra, strange sound, ghost voices, mysterious sound, sound, hum, skyquake, trumpet sound, trumpet in the sky, weird sounds, audio, funny, can, you, think, you can, system, face, crazy, random, silly, end of the world siberia,paranormal,mysterious light,object,sea creature,teleportation,portal,above,appearing,12th Planet nibiru , Planet X,alien,Mexico City,spotted, Shapeshifters,Reptilian.two suns,humanoid,Strange trumpet sounds ISS,UFOCrash,Spaceships,bizarre,SpaceX,Tesla,roadster.moon,meteor,nasa,phenomenon,events,drone,Pleiadians,Ashtar,Ashtarcommand.Message,Pleiadian,spiritual,horoscope,Orion,tall white aliens,the Nordics,secret,nemesis,ufo 2018,ufo in california,strange cloud,technology,hawaii,eruption,volcano,earthquake,interview,news,secret,leaks

#GLAadventure team reaches Cooper Pedy which is known for two things - Opal and Underground Homes. Here most of the houses are underground including the hotel. These homes are called "dugouts" and the houses are fashioned in such a way due to scorching temperature during day time. This underground town was established in 1915 following the discovery of opal there. It's interesting to know that ninety five per cent of the world's opal comes from this area.

Boom Town To Ghost Town ( Coolgardie )
 
04:26
Coolgardie is a small town in Western Australia, 558 kilometres (347 mi) east of the state capital, Perth. It has a population of approximately 1,000 people.[1] Although Coolgardie is now known to most Western Australians as a tourist town and a mining ghost town, it was once the third largest town in Western Australia (after Perth and Fremantle). At this time, mining of alluvial gold was a major industry and supplied the flagging economy with new hope. Many miners suffered under the harsh conditions, but for a few, their finds made the hard work worthwhile. Most men, however, left poorer than they had started off, with their hopes dashed. The town was founded in 1892, when gold was discovered in the area.[4] Australia had seen several major gold rushes over the previous three decades, mostly centred on the east coast, but these had mostly been exhausted by the 1890s. With the discovery of a new goldfield, an entire new gold rush began, with thousands flocking to the area. By 1898, Coolgardie was the third largest town in the colony, with an estimated population of 5,008 (3,151 men and 1,857 women).[5] At its peak, 700 mining companies based in Coolgardie were registered with the London Stock Exchange. The town also supported a wide variety of businesses and services, including the railway connection between Perth and Kalgoorlie,[6] a swimming pool (first public baths in the state), many hotels and several newspapers. The value of Coolgardie to the colony in the late 1890s was so very significant that it was used as leverage to force Western Australia to join the Australian federation - Britain and the eastern colonies threatened to create a new state to be named Auralia around Coolgardie and other regional goldfields, such as Kalgoorlie, if the government in Perth did not agree to hold a referendum on federation. The Western Australian government reluctantly complied and a referendum was held just in time to become a founding state in the new federation. When federation did occur in 1901, Coolgardie was the centre of a federal electorate, the Division of Coolgardie. Soon after in November 1901, Alf Morgans from the state electorate of Coolgardie briefly became Premier of Western Australia. Albert Thomas, also of Coolgardie, was elected the first Member of Dundas, an electoral division south of Coolgardie. However, the gold began to decrease in the early 1900s, and by World War I, the town was in serious decline. The federal electorate was abolished in 1913 due to the diminished population, as many of its residents left for other towns where the gold was still plentiful, and it soon ceased to be a municipality. The situation remained unchanged throughout the century, as its population slipped to around 200 and it became a virtual ghost town. An example of this decline is that, in March 1896, Coolgardie's main street was lit by an electric light, but by April 1924, the same street was lit by four hurricane lamps. Despite this, many of the buildings from the town's peak were retained, which in recent years has helped start a small revival in the town's fortunes. The development of a tourist industry has once again created some employment in the town, resulting in a small increase in population. Coolgardie appears to be no longer in danger of dying. _____________________________________ Music By - Midnight Oil.

Wittenoom - Abandoned deadly asbestos mining ghost town in outback Western Australia (CREEPY)!

This town was really cool to visit and one of our favourite towns in Australia that we've visited so far! Although the town isn't completely abandoned (there is still a couple of residents), as you drive around you really get the feeling of it being a ghost town. There are no government services provided anymore and the residents are responsible for all their own power and water. There is signage up every where warning you of the presence of deadly asbestos, which adds to the creepy feeling of the place! : Please subscribe for more great outback videos : © OZOUTBACK All rights reserved 2017.

Made by Roger Whittaker Films - 1982. NFSA title no. 262876 This documentary delves into the social, cultural, and economic lives of the residents of the remote opal mining town of Coober Pedy, South Australia. Produced shortly after the Coober Pedy Act of 1981, the film captures social and economic changes underway, hastened by the introduction of satellite television in 1980. The historically maverick town must adapt to the formality of local government if it is to continue supporting its residents.

Cue, Western Australia (HD)
 
05:17
Cue, Western Australia (HD) - Cue, WA Tourism and vacation Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The small town of Cue in Western Australia's Murchison Region is to me a particularly interesting outback town. Like so many old WA mining towns, Cue has thrived and floundered over the years with times of boom and bust. The town was established in 1893 following the discovery of gold in the area the year before, which sparked a gold rush to the remote Murchison Region desert. In its heyday at the beginning of the twentieth century Cue was home to over 10000 people, a thriving and prosperous town known as "The Queen of the Murchison". These days things couldn't be more different. With a population of less than 300, Cue is very close to being a ghost town. When we visited Cue earlier this year the wide streets were still and silent beneath a big blue desert sky. The whole time we were there we didn't see a single soul walking around town and we noticed a good number of the buildings were abandoned or up for lease. The empty streets of Cue would have felt really quite spooky if it weren't for the constant parade of roadtrains roaring through on their way between Perth and the Pilbara carrying fuel and massive pieces of mining equipment. This for me is what made Cue such a memorable place -- the decay and ghostliness of the semi-abandoned town, and the way it felt as if time had stood still there ever since the 1930′s. However I have a feeling that Cue might be quite a different place in a few years time as the shire seems to be going to some effort to restore the town's buildings to their former glory and attract more visitors to the town and surrounding region. And with rumours of a new big mine opening in the area, the population could soon be set to rise again. Gracious Heritage Architecture in Cue =========================== Walking around the streets of Cue feel like stepping back in time. Not much appears to have changed on the main street over the years. Almost all of the buildings are the original ones that were built in the 1890′s and 1900′s -- some still serving their original purpose, some beautifully restored and others abandoned and left to ruin. While a lot of the old heritage Goldrush-era buildings look crumbling and decrepit, I can still understand why Cue's town slogan is "Queen of the Murchison". Some of the old sandstone buildings sure are grand for a dusty outpost in the middle of nowhere! Visiting and Exploring Around Cue, Western Australia =============================== If you happen to be heading up Great Northern Highway for any reason -- on your way to Karijini and the Pilbara perhaps -- then I highly recommend making a stop in Cue. It is an interesting and memorable place to spend some time in and is well-situated for a stopover on a long outback drive, being 650km from Perth and approximately half way to Newman and Karijini. If you've got a bit of time to spare while you're in the area, it's well worth taking a half-day detour westwards out to Walga Rock and the ghost town Big Bell. Things to See and Do in and Around Cue, Western Australia ================================ Go for a drive or walk around town and have a look at the interesting and beautiful old heritage buildings. Government Buildings -- police station, court house and post office Gentleman's Club (now the shire office) Masonic Lodge building Bank of New South Wales building Rotunda (site of the town's first well) Pensioner huts and old gaol (part of the caravan park) Check out the historical photograph collection in the shire office building (formerly the town Gentleman's Club) to gain some more context to the history of Cue. Drive up to the top of the Radio Tower Hill (Cue Lookout) for views over the town, the nearby mines, and horizon-to-horizon dry red earth. A good idea is to pick up the brochure and follow the Cue Heritage Trail, which will take around to the main attractions in the surrounding area and provide interesting background info. Try fossicking for gold -- you never know, you could get lucky! In late winter and spring the beautiful desert wildflowers bloom to life, carpeting the red dusty ground in fields of colour. This is the best time of year to visit Cue and explore the surrounding country. Camp out for the night or just enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife at Lake Nallan, a nature reserve about 24km north of Cue Or camp/picnic at Milly Soak, 16km north of Cue. Also has a small pioneer cemetery and well Head out west along Austin Downs Road to Walga Rock to see the cave paintings, climb the rock and perhaps camp there for the night. While in the area, check out what remains of Big Bell, a ghost town.

Centralia Burning Ghost Town - Pennsylvania USA
 
04:26
Centralia, Pennsylvania was nearly entirely evacuated following a coal mine fire, burning beneath the town since 1962. Centralia’s fire started in 1962, when residents turned an old strip mine into a dump, and setting the rubbish alight. The fire spread through an unsealed opening to the underground coal mines, igniting a seam of coal, and the fire has been burning to this day. In 1992, Pennsylvania condemned the town and claimed it under eminent domain in an attempt for force the remaining residents out. Some sued, and were allowed to stay. A section of State Route 61 was abandoned after it began to buckle and crumble from the underground fire. The fire stretches 12km, and burns underneath an area of 15 square kilometres, 300 feet below ground, authorities say the fire could burn for another 250 years. The town now mostly attracts tourists who visit an abandoned highway, where many profanities and obscene pictures are spray painted onto it, over time the highway has earned the nickname Graffiti Highway. Centralia is rumored to have inspired Silent Hill.

The Town that Lives Underground
 
04:06
Coober Pedy in South Australia is a town almost completely built underground. It is located 526 miles or 846 km north of Adelaide on the Stuart Highway. A 2011 census found there was a population of 1695 people living there. The name Coober Pedy comes from a local Aboriginal term kupa-piti which means boys waterhole. This town is referred to as the opal capital of the world because of the incredible opals that are pulled from the mine near town. Most people live in below ground houses called dugouts which dramatically help with the scorching daytime heat. A standard 3 bedroom house costs about the same to build than an above ground home. Below ground homes remain at a steady temperature where above ground homes need air conditioning to survive the hot Australian heat. Temperatures in summer time can go above 104 degrees F or 40 degrees celsius. The first houses in Coober Pedy were holes dug in search for opals, once an area was cleared of any opals it became someone’s tiny house. Today opal mining isn’t allowed within town limits but you can always add another room to your house which isn’t considered mining. Back in the old days all the underground homes were built with picks and shovels but today only modern machinery is used and does the job significantly faster. When a tunneling machine finishes a room an attractive pattern is left on the walls and ceiling which is then finished off with a clear sealer to prevent dust. The town relies on tourism and the opal mine for most of the employment. The first opal found in Coober Pedy was on February 1st 1915, today Coober Pedy features over 70 opal fields making it the largest opal mining area of the world. The opals sell at wholesale auction for around $50 - $200 per thumb sized opal. Nothing like $100 dollar bills in the walls of your house. The mine is a popular tourist attraction but the town also has people visit the graveyard and the 2 underground churches. There are more than 1 motels that offer underground accommodation ranging from a single room to than entire motel being underground. The one and only tree within the town is welded from scrap pieces of iron which sits on a hilltop overlooking the town. Surprisingly there is a golf course in town which is completely void of grass and played at night time with golf balls that glow in the dark. Golfers will take a patch of turf around with them for the tee off at each hole. The Coober Pedy golf club is the only one in the world to have reciprocal rights at world famous St. Andrews club. The town also has a Australian football club that must travel 560 miles or 900 km just to play their matches at Roxby Downs. Coober Pedy is a very isolated place, temperatures can swing from scorching hot during the day to almost freezing at night. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coober_Pedy Music: Jon Wilhelmi https://soundcloud.com/jonathanwilhelmi/ambient-mix Check out some of our other videos: Top 10 Fruits You’ve Never Heard Of Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRdgPyZF45g&feature=youtu.be Top 10 Fruits You’ve Never Heard Of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKTej1u-7-0&feature=youtu.be Top 5 Most EXTREME Roller Coasters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTofF4_OPkM&feature=youtu.be Top 10 Craziest Lego Creations – Lego Sculptures to Blow Your Mind! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mip9G0_rUTk&feature=youtu.be Top 10 LONGEST LIVING Creatures on Earth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDaPH_ZGiVw&feature=youtu.be Support TTL by using our amazon link: http://amzn.to/2dQQ4nu Subscribe to our channel! → http://bit.ly/subscribe_to_titantoplist For copyright matters please contact: [email protected] Check us out on social media: Website - http://www.titantoplist.com Facebook - https://facebook.com/titantoplist Twitter - https://twitter.com/titantoplist Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/titantoplist Here at Titan Top List you'll experience the world's best mysteries, science, facts, news, conspiracies, inventions, scams, movies, games and amazing animals.

Coober Pedy is a famous outback town in the middle of absolute no where. Why is it famous? Well the town is a Opal mining town and its hot, so hot that some of the residents actually live in underground homes, yep real underground homes called "Dug Outs".

04:17
The remote town of Coober Pedy, Australia, is home to about 2,000 people, many of whom gravitated there to mine opal. The extreme climate of the Outback meant residents had to find creative ways to live and work – and they did. In this week’s Sunday Closer, NBC’s Sara James explores their underground dugouts, which make up a community that’s unlike any other. » Subscribe to TODAY: http://on.today.com/SubscribeToTODAY » Watch the latest from TODAY: http://bit.ly/LatestTODAY About: TODAY brings you the latest headlines and expert tips on money, health and parenting.

Coober Pedy (Australia’s Underground City)
 
01:23
Coober Pedy is a town in northern South Australia, 846 km north of Adelaide, where everyone lives underground. On the surface, the place looks pretty deserted. With just a few hotels and, randomly, a golf course dotted around, the place has the air of an abandoned town. In fact, around 3,500 people live there. It’s just that most of them (60 per cent) live below the surface – in homes burrowed out of caves. Coober Pedy was established in 1915 following the discovery of opal there. Ninety five per cent of the world’s opal comes from the area. But, people who flocked there to mine the previous stones soon discovered life above ground was pretty tough – because of the scorching temperatures. In the summer, the temperature often exceeds 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). 100 years later and as well as palatial underground homes, the town has several underground hotels and B&Bs (the Coober Pedy Underground B&B won Australia’s best B&B last year). Then there’s the underground church, a gift shop, a few museums, a casino, and, of course, the local pub.

Underground city, Australia - Coober Pedy
 
01:10
Coober Pedy is a town in northern South Australia, 846 kilometres north of Adelaide on the Stuart Highway. According to the 2011 census, its population was 1,695 (953 males, 742 females, including 275 indigenous Australians).[1] The town is sometimes referred to as the "opal capital of the world" because of the quantity of precious opals that are mined there. Coober Pedy is renowned for its below-ground residences, called "dugouts", which are built in this fashion due to the scorching daytime heat. The name "Coober Pedy" comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, which means "white man's hole", Opal was found in Coober Pedy on 1 February 1915 Подземный город в Австралии Кубер Педи,
Top 10 Things to do in Ballarat Victoria Australia
 
24:58
If you plan on taking a holiday to Victoria Australia, one of the most popular tourist spots to visit outside of Melbourne is Ballarat. It does get a bit cooler than Melbourne, so take some warm clothes! One of the biggest festivals in Ballarat is their Winter Festival. Here they decorate laneways with colourful lights and have a pop up ice skating ring just off Sturt Street. One of the biggest events though is the Winter Wonderlights at Sovereign Hill. I’ll show more of this in the video guide to Ballarat. In this video I will show you some of the best things to do in Ballarat for a family, couple or even solo traveller. This is a list of Ballarat’s top tourist attractions 10. Ballarat Wildlife Park The park was opened in 1987 and covers some 37 acres of natural bushland. If you want to see some natural Australian animals, Ballarat Wildlife Park has plenty, from free roaming kangaroos and emus – where you can hand feed these cute Australian animals. Learn about koalas on one of the guided tours. Get a selfie with a wombat. Watch Tasmanian devils getting fed. See giant tortoises, crocodiles and alligators. And of course the meerkats! Check out the reptile enclose for snakes and lizards. A great place to take the whole family in Ballarat. 9. Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka The Eureka Flag is housed on the historic site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade and is surrounded by the scenic Eureka Stockade Memorial Gardens. 8. The Art Gallery of Ballarat. If you’re an art lover, this is the place to visit in Ballart. It holds both temporary and permanent art works. 7. Gold Museum of Ballarat. Gold is what made this town and this museum gives a fascinating insight to Ballarat’s gold rush. If you buy a ticket to Sovereign Hill, you will get the ticket included to the museum. 6. Lake Wendouree. This is a lovely spot to visit in Ballarat – enjoy a stroll around the lake, stop of one of the cafes or just enjoy the lovely gardens of the Botanic Gardens in Ballarat. Highlights to visit are the Prime Ministers Avenue, Adam Lindsay Gordon Cottage, the Australian Ex- Prisoner of War Memorial, the Ballarat Tramway Museum (try to take a tram ride by Lake Wendouree) and the 1956 Olympic Memorial. 5. Ballarat Ghost Tour. With Ballarat having the reputation of being one of Australia’s most haunted cities why night take a ghost tour of Ballarat at night. Eerie Ghost tours operates a weekend ghost tour of Ballarat. Meet under the clock tower at Ballarat Railway Station for a spooky 2 hour walking ghost tour. Visit haunted spots and listen to ghost stories by the guide. A fun way to see Ballarat. 4. Ballarat Heritage Tours. Take one of this walking tours of Ballarat, learn about this history of the city and its famous landmarks. Taken by an experienced guide who is extremely knowledgeable about Ballarat history. 3. Bloody Ballarat Tour. Take this tour of the dark side of Ballarat – true tales of murder and crime that you don’t learn in your history books. A fantastic tour you should do in Ballarat. The tours run at night. 2. Kryal Castle. One of the more popular things to do in Ballarat, especially for the family is Kryal Castle. Built as medieval castle just outside of town. Fun things to see the knights at the Tournament Arena. Here they joust on horseback and even sword fight. Watch the wizard make potions in his workshop. Visit the Torture Museum or get lost in the castle’s maze. There are places to eat and you can even stay overnight at one of their rooms. I will do another video on accommodation at Kryal Castle. Prices are listed on the website. 1/ Sovereign Hill Without a doubt the number one tourist attraction in Ballarat is Sovereign Hill. It has been voted Australia’s best ‘Major Tourist Attraction’ multiple times. A theme park set back as an 1850’s gold mining town. Learn to pan for gold in a replica river. Go underground on some the gold mining tours. Watch people preforming chores dressed in period costumes. See how they make candy the old way. Some other popular attractions at Sovereign Hill include the Red Coat Soldiers musket firing, horse and coach rides, bowling, candle making, getting and old photo taken and other street activities. A great place to take the whole family - a great educational experience for kids to learn about history. During Winter Sovereign Hill has its Winter Wonderlights Festival. This is a specular light show – that for me is a must do in Ballarat. The lights and snow effects make this truly a wonderful show to experience. During the festival they decorate Main Street shops with Christmas decorates, have a band playing Christmas Carols and you might even see Santa. One of the best Christmas in July events in Australia! A must for the family! Ticket prices are listed on the website. *All rates and conditions subject to change without notice. Please check directly with the establishments for latest prices and conditions.

South Australia: From Oceans to Outback
 
23:48
http://www.wanderlust.co.uk/ExploreAustralia From the rugged Outback to the glittering Southern Ocean, South Australia is known for its wildlife, food, wine and beauty. South Australia is vast, spanning nearly half a million square miles. With a population of around one point six million people, that’s just four people per square mile. Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third largest, and home to a remarkable range of wildlife. With over 800 native species of plants and rare sights like the endangered glossy black cockatoo, Kangaroo Island is typified by unspoiled wilderness and a magnificent selection of flora and fauna, including the kangaroos that give it its name. Just over a thousand sea lions live and breed in the Seal Bay Conservation Park, one of the most popular tourist attractions of Kangaroo Island. Marine life thrives all across the shores of South Australia. The state’s coastline stretches for more than 3,000 miles, and after a flight of just 40 minutes from Adelaide the mighty Eyre Peninsula awaits. Baird Bay is a small fishing village situated on the west of the peninsula. Snorkelling here isn’t a typical experience, as the the coastal waters are home to Australian sea lions and pods of dolphins. Adelaide, the state capital city, was founded in 1836 as a planned, freely settled colony. It was a place where immigrants could settle free from religious persecution. Nowadays the city remains a vibrant, bustling cultural centre, home to thriving markets, a lively night scene and dozens of festivals a year. From Adelaide’s beautiful architecture to a wealth of museums detailing its immigrant settlers, Adelaide does not shy away from its multicultural history. For example, the South Australian Museum houses the largest collection of Aboriginal ethnographic material in the world. Climbing away from the coast and the bustle of the city are the quiet, rural hills of the Barossa Valley. The Barossa is world-renowned for its red wine, and over 150 wineries lie within an hour’s drive from Adelaide. But the Barossa is not only home to wine. It’s one of the world’s top culinary destinations. The vibrancy of South Australia doesn’t end in Barossa. Follow the Stuart Highway north, beyond the hills and the vineyards of the Clare Valley to where green turns to red and the Outback begins. For many the jewel in the crown of this region is the dramatic stretch of rock known fondly as the ‘Organ Pipes’. Gawler Range. Enormous, solid volcanic rhyolite is stacked in the cliff face here, ranging in size from stony grinning teeth to the elongated pillars that remind so many people of magnificent organs. The rugged landscape of the Flinders Ranges epitomises the romanticism of outback Australia: big skies, incredible sunsets, and sun-baked desert as far as the eye can see. In the summer it’s a hot, dry landscape. It might seem daunting at first, but look a bit closer and you’ll find the place teeming with life. The Flinders Ranges have also been inhabited by humans for thousands of years. Aborigines have walked in these hills since long before European settlers arrived, using the plants and the rocks for food and creating art. The Flinders Ranges are now home to numerous towns and villages scattered along the highway. The area is accessible as a destination for hiking, cycling, camping and wildlife watching, giving visitors a taste of the iconic outback. Rawnsley Park Station is a working farm that has managed to find a way to blend sheep farming and tourism. The owners provide scenic flights over the spectacular geological formation, Wilpena Pound. Wilpena Pound is an ancient valley floor amidst mountains that have been eroded over hundreds of millions of years. Its golden walls are formed of highly resistant quartzite and sandstone. The area is protected from mining and most human impact other than tourism. Nowadays, 4x4s can be seen roaming along the ridgetops that command spectacular views of the timeless landscape. Life can nevertheless be found all over the northern reaches of South Australia. The emu is a large, flightless bird, endemic to Australia and a close relation of the ostrich. Its long legs allow it to reach speeds of up to 30 miles an hour. It has become an iconic image of Australia. Continuing up the spine of the country, we reach the northern regions of South Australia. This is opal mining country, and the Painted Desert may seem barren, but can be extremely lucrative for those willing to work. The town of Coober Pedy is the opal mining capital of the world, known for the way its people live underground in dugouts to escape the fierce desert heat. We’ve travelled from the crystal waters of the Southern Ocean to the dry beauty of the outback, covering one of the most magnificent states in Australia. The Explorers’ Way crosses the state border, slicing the country in half as it continues into the Northern Territory.

Underground Australian Town - Coober Pedy HD 2014
 
02:26
The Residents Of This Australian Town Live Underground For A Very Good Reason Coober Pedy is a small Australian town, known for its very bizarre living arrangements. Because this remote community is located in the outback, it endures seasonal dust storms, with temperatures that reach up to 118 degrees in the shade. To stay cool during the summer and warm in the winter, residents have built homes underground that protect them from the harsh elements. But why, you ask, do people live here? Opals. Cooper Pedy is the largest opal mining area in the world. While the name "Coober Pedy" comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, meaning "white man's hole," the town itself is made up of more than 45 different nationalities. And while this place doesn't seem like the most ideal setting to call home, opal mining is an incredibly lucrative business. Living underground for a few years in exchange for striking it rich?

Coober Pedy: Living underground - Domain
 
03:17
Coober Pedy is a different world. In fact, it looks so much like a far-off desert planet that it has stood in for Mars in a series of Hollywood blockbusters. The pink sandstone formations rising out of the red dirt, framed by a sapphire blue sky, create an ethereal beauty easily mistaken for outer space. Dotted around the 100-year-old mining town, halfway between Adelaide and Alice Springs, are the abandoned props from those films: a dilapidated spaceship here, paper mache aliens there. The eerie celestial monuments punctuate the red streets alongside discarded mining equipment and weathered opal shop signs. Welcome to the opal capital of the world and the strangest town in Australia. Coober Pedy’s heyday is well behind it and it seems frozen in the ’80s – the last opal boom. Mining has declined sharply since the ’90s, as the old guard dies off and the town transitions into its new life as an offbeat tourist attraction.

In the middle of the Australian Outback, there's a town where chimneys rise from the sand and big red signs warn people of "unmarked holes." Welcome to Coober Pedy, the town that lives underground. What began in 1917 as perhaps the largest opal mining operation in the world has since expanded into a subterranean community that is safely out of reach from the region's 120-degree summers. Entire bedrooms, bookstores, churches, and bars are installed in the carved underground walls of Coober Pedy — and after 100 years of living in these "dugouts," the folks who call it home have no plans of stopping.

This AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK Town Is Dying. (  Drone footage of a small town in Australia )
 
03:15
I discover an Australian outback town dying. Small towns in Queensland & across Australia are close to death. I took drone footage of one particular outback town; Mingella. Mingela, with an estimated population of 20, is located 90 kilometres west of Townsville, and 48 kilometres east from Charters Towers, in Queensland Australia. The site of Mingela was once known as Cunningham's Waterholes. These billabongs made a practical place for settlers and travellers to camp overnight. Edward Cunningham was the first white man to pass through here in 1861 after Kennedy. It was the ideal location for a railway junction following the Ravenswood gold rush of 1869 and the Charters Towers rush of 1872. The township of Cunningham was surveyed in 1881 and its name soon changed to Ravenswood Junction in 1884. When the railway line was closed in 1930, the name changed again to Mingela from the original Aboriginal place name of "Ming-illa", meaning big waterhole. Bird life is prevalent during the wet season at the remaining waterholes near the Highway.
