Cooberpedy opal

Opal is a passion for us as well as a lot of other people and like anybody with a "passion", we find that we like to share those opal outback experiences with others; experiences of our travels to the opal mining towns, fossicking, noodling, going down a mine, places we've stayed, chatting to those interesting characters that we meet along the way....

It would be lovely to read your opal outback story of what experiences and encounters you have had in your "opal travels" !
