March 2015 - Coober Pedy Australia
I'm going to the other side of the world today for my rubbish. Coober Pedy in Australia was a very odd town full of odd characters.
Crocodile Harry was one of Coober Pedy's most infamous characters and lived in one of the most bizarre dugouts.
Many people from throughout Europe know of him through the Lonely Planet's "Guidebook to Australia".
Other's may recognise his home from the underground scenes of "Mad Max-Beyond the Thunderdome".
Harry sadly passed away in 2006 but his dugout is open to the public with an entrance fee of $5.
This was junk at its finest!!
Check back on Wednesday for some of the many signs in this dugout.
On the drive there.
What a peculiar place!ReplyDelete
