Very interesting, and a tribute to a very astute pioneering woman. To have built a home out of rock, literilaly from the ground up by hand is amazing!

Fay has made a lovely home - started by hand and shovel. Well done Girl. Well worth a look very impressed.

Been there twice and loved it, I recommend the stop to give you a natural idea as it is not too commercial.

For a small fee of $5, this was our favourite guided tour of a true underground house. The tour is run by a couple who live there, welcoming you into their home and sharing the history of Faye and her friends. A must see

Colin provided a great in-site into the history of what was Faye's underground house.
Given that it is the house that they currently live in the modest admission fee which is well worth it.
