The World’s Strangest Underground Town in Australia

You wouldn’t quite believe it until you saw it. Today, we will take you to the moon, where you will view (with your own eyes) a bizarre moonscape comprising thousands of deep dark holes.

Just joking! This is not the moon, this is White Cliffs. This is Australia mate! Set in the middle of nowhere (1100km north-west of Sydney) this dot of a town has a rich opal mining history dating back to the 1800’s.

So much so, the landscape comprises thousands of hillocks of earth, dug and discarded in their quest to strike it rich, to find the mighty opal stone.

And would you know it, some smart fella (probably a kiwi) decided that the best place to live was in these holes.

In this otherworldly destination, most of its 100 residents live underground, to escape the heat and the wild kangaroos that roam the outback. Is this the world’s most unusual town?
