Awesome Underground Town In Australia

If you were to walk into this mining town of 3,000 people, you wouldn't see a bustling little town. You'd actually only see half of its population. That's because half the people who live in Coober Pedy live underground.

Saving on heating in winter & air-conditioning in summer, too! Temperatures tend to remain very stable in underground dwellings! Practical ... though I wonder how they handle their plumbing & sewage systems ...?
