There are more than a quarter million mine shafts in the Coober Pedy area, and visitors are warned to be on the lookout for them when traveling alone -- or run the risk of falling into one and remaining undiscovered for days on end, or not being found at all.
In fact, straying by one's self around town, especially by a woman, is advised against, and it's not just falling into a mine shaft that is the danger.
Unless you´re already traveling with a group, it may be best to stay with organised tours, or stay very close to the heart of town.
