What a great tour, we did both mine and house - both had a fascinating history. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, answering all our questions with an in depth knowledge. A great insight into mining life and an extraordinary lady.

Great tour and a brilliant story about Faye and the other two ladies who helped build the house. Tour made even better by our tour guide Grant who is such a great story teller. Definitely recommend as a must do if in Coober Pedy!
