What an unusual place! We have a good sense of humour so we found the house very entertaining and well put together. It was fun exploring all the tunnels out the back too. Worth a visit as it really gives insight into the quirkiness of...More

It is nothing but junk! I suggest you save your fuel, your time, and your money (they have an honesty box) by giving this one a miss. Having seen other reviews I can only assume other people earn their dollars more easily than I do....More

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

A truly amazing place ( home ) to visit . It is easy to understand the concept of this man being the original crocodile hunter inspiring the Crocodile Dundee movies.

This place made me laugh from the moment I got out of my vehicle. Simply amazing and unbelievable really. Harry has passed now but it was easy to see he was a character. It's worth googling him before you go as he really is part...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
