You are Invited Behind the Scenes on an Opal Mining Adventure

Hello fellow Opal lovers, I am currently busy packing my mining equipment, filling my spare petrol cans and making sure everything is in order for another trip to Lightning Ridge! I wonder what I might be lucky enough to find this time......


Who wants to join me in the Outback Downunder?

You are invited to join us for a few days if you'd like to visit the outback and see the whole opal mining process from the inside. It's a one of a kind experience that was very well received by everyone on the last tour! The adventure includes:

  • Delve underground with Mac in a working Opal mine.
  • Bask in the hot artesian bore baths, morning and night.
  • Accommodation in a real shearer's quarters in the heart of this sunburnt country.
  • Camping with campfire cooking, breakfast and dinner included.

It's a four day activity-packed tour.

See opal mining not as a tourist but behind the scenes. Our chartered bus will be leaving from Bellingen NSW at 8am on Thursday July 21st and arriving back mid afternoon on Monday July 25th.

The included accommodation is on a sheep station in the shearer's quarters. That's private rooms with shared bathroom and communal kitchen. We'll cook breakfast and dinner for you over the campfire.

In between we'll take you on an insider view of the multicultural and one-of-a-kind opal town of Lightning Ridge.

We'll lunch at the Bowling Club (the largest beer distributor in Australia) and at the famous Pub in the Scrub; we'll do the the legendary Lightning Ridge 'Car Door' tours; we've lined up an expert on opal fossils to amaze you; there'll be an opal cutting demonstration; We'll visit a walk in opal mine and you can even come down our mine with us for a look if you're fit and able; Opal buying advice is on tap, along with visits to opal dealers; Try your luck at noodling for opal and maybe even find one for free!

And relax in the hot artesian bore baths twice a day. It will be a tour you will never forget. Opals here we come!
