The Lookout Cave is a family owned and operated underground motel providing guests with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Motel has been established since 1993 and has recently changed ownership since December 2010. During 2011 the Motel has completely refurbished its two bedroom unit with a sleek modern feel yet retaining the natural wonder of living underground. We are continuely improving and developing the motel.
The Motel is located in the opal-mining town of Coober Pedy in the South Australian outback. We are minutes from the town centre in a secure and quiet location with ample parking and as the name suggests, the Lookout Cave offers the best views in Coober Pedy.
Immerse yourself with incredible ochre-lit skies across the vast desert landscape that continues all the way out to our local landmark, The Breakaways. Not even our locals grow tired of the beautiful outback scenery our country presents.
The lookout point above the Motel is the highest in town, perfect for sunrise and sunset photography and open to the public and guests alike.
Coober Pedy is a resource of hidden treasures; we encourage you to explore and discover a truly unique outback experience you will find nowhere else in the world.
