Welcome to White Cliffs Underground Motel White Cliffs
The White Cliffs Underground Motel is built almost entirely by hand, using jack hammers. No two rooms are the same and walking through the Motel is a world of discovery. The entire complex is the size of a football field underground.
With the most underground rooms out of the three underground motels in Australia, staying at the White Cliffs Underground Motel is an experience like none other. It is dug into ‘Poor Mans Hill’ (Smith Hill), so called due to the lack of opal, the first excavations of the site were done by a local opal miner around the early 1900’s.
The motel boasts a tranquility that ensures a relaxed and peaceful stay. Once you venture underground, the distractions of modern life are let behind. There is no radio or mobile phone coverage, no fridge, TV or bathroom noise. Generally facilities and amenities are located along the edge of the complex, supporting both the peace of underground living, and the stability of the soil structure.
The rooms are known as ‘dugouts’ where you sleep nestled in the hill, in a cosy constant temperature insulated from the harsh and noisy environment of the external world. Rooms can accommodate from 1 person to 5 people, with adjoining rooms for large groups or families.
