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.

About 5km from Coober Pedy in the middle of nowhere is this Madmax type place built into a mountain cave. A cryogenic stasis chamber and a cave room with bed and selection of ladies underwear is just a taster,
