An interesting place Coober Pedy feels like a modern cowboy town, a glitzy Andamooka (I don’t mean pretty). Lots of Aborigine’s here with little to do, Coober Pedy comes from an Aboriginal word which means white man in hole - and there is certainly a lot of that here. We did some underground mine tours which were great; kids liked the tunnels going in all directions trying to get lost. And of course the kid’s favourite digging and playing in the dirt (noodling), we were all extremely dusty, dirty and smelly.
Last day in Coober Pedy and boys had their lesson on line with their teacher Ginny. They were really disappointed to have missed the last few weeks as we were out of range. They have about 30mins each with her on Wednesday arvo’s, using an interactive programme called Centra and they love it.
