Interesting for a few minutes, depends on your sense of humour. Not sure if the $7 honesty entrance fee was a joke but paid it anyway. A bit hard to find the road as it says no entrance due to unexploded mines!

Such an interesting place! Glad that I googled his story first, as that was the only thing that let it down... There is really nothing that explains his history and how he came to be who he was! So much to look at and imagine...More

This place is a must see when in Coober Pedy. Was setup as an underground back packers years ago and there are plenty of tales of parties, debauchery and fun. You could only imagine on visiting the place the stories the walls would entail. Devastated...More

I have been getting told about this place for ages and it appears Harry's has been around quite a while. If you like old women's underwear hanging on walls this is the place for you. Otherwise, time to shut down as there really is nothing...More

This is a different decorated underground home. Harry was definitely a unique one of a kind guy. Loved women and was also married once. Home decorated like he had it but tourists have left stuff like knickers and bras and written on walls etc. Interesting...More

Very unusual place. Harry was obviously a character and much loved by all. Some great photos of early "Croc" days. Worth a quick look if you have the time.
