To start your free visit to the Outback Opal Mine why not view the interesting eight minute documentary available in English, Japanese and German. Then take a walk through the simulated Opal mine to see a variety of rough black, boulder and crystal opal embedded in the wall.

Relax on the verandah and enjoy morning or afternoon tea.
