This place is great! We were doing a tour from Adelaide to Alice Springs and of course this was one of the stops we were really looking forward to. We also wanted to get something opal as a memory of our trip and there were so many nice options to choose from in the attached shop for both guys and girls. There are many places you can buy opal around the area, but the mine seemed a little more special and credible, and I couldn't be happier. Months after our trip I had an opal fall out of the ring and when I called to enquire they simply asked for my proof of purchase and they were happy to have their jeweller fix the issue and mail it back to me, all free of charge - that's quality! Kate was a gem to deal with and I would happily recommend others to visit this place and if you're thinking about buying something opal, you can shop with confidence here!
This place has very good and convenient accommodation. The staff is friendly and the tour is very informative. At the above of this place, there is a lookout for enjoying the view of the town and Sunrise/set spot.
