On the surface, the place looks pretty deserted. With just a few hotels and, randomly, a golf course dotted around, the place has the air of an abandoned town. In fact, around 3,500 people live there. It’s just that most of them (60 per cent) live below the surface – in homes burrowed out of caves.

Below ground homes remain at a steady temperature where above ground homes need air conditioning to survive the hot Australian heat. Temperatures in summe...
