Jane and Chris Henderson

It's not for everyone, but if one couple's experience is anything to go by, living underground could be the key to keeping the cost of buying a home as low as possible.

Jane and Chris Henderson, who live in White Cliffs, NSW, with their two-year-old daughter, bought their home - a converted mine shaft known as a dugout - for just $75,000.
The mother-of-one fell in love with the simple life when she visited White Cliffs, an opal mining town with a population of just 200 people, seven years ago.

The story of White Cliffs New South Wales.
White Cliffs is a small town in outback New South Wales in Australia, in Central Darling Shire. White Cliffs is around 255 km northeast of Broken Hill, 93 km north of Wilcannia. At the 2006 census, White Cliffs had a population of 119. The primary school opened in 1895, and has operated continuously since then. White Cliffs was one of the many places visited by Bill Bryson in research for the book In a Sunburned Country

Opal fields at White Cliffs, The town was established in the late 19th century when opal was discovered. Opal has been mined ever since. The first Australian opal was found 20 years before in Queensland in 1872, when a party of kangaroo hunters were operating in the White Cliffs area. One of them, who had left the party to track down a wounded kangaroo over some low stony hills, picked up a pretty stone which appealed to him. When taking back the stone, they suspected it could be opal which the local jeweller confirmed. He advised to get as much opal as possible since this could be more profitable than kangaroo hunting. When the group filed a claim, opal had not yet been listed under gemstones, and it was decided to file the claim under the "Gold Mining Act"

Many of the residents live underground, using mining equipment to dig extensive homes in the hillside to avoid the intense heat outside. Cricketer Bill O'Reilly was born in White Cliffs, the son of the first school teacher.

From a visitor to White Cliffs New South Wales

Just a short note to the people of White Cliffs we drove in to your little town on Friday, just another town but it is not just another town it is full of wonderful people that just wanted to mix with visitors to town, we stayed at the caravan park, it's clean and a nice park.

Red Earth and the Underground Motel are a must see in White Cliffs the Den and the Bottle Shop.

Everyone wanted to talk with us at the Hotel. We will return to White Cliffs next year and stay a week, after three days I felt like a local.

Thank you.
Wendy and John Queensland
