  • This is a great tour, very informative checking out a working opal mine. We were able to find out about the different Opals there are, in particular the 'pineapple' opal. Well worth going, the guy...

  • Excellent tour and great value. I stayed an extra night at White Cliffs to do this tour and was not disappointed. I have no real interest in opals or in mines but the tour was really informative and interesting. Graeme even gave us opportunity to dig in his current work area. As well as learning about opal mining, I came away understanding so much more about White Cliffs and the appeal of living here. Don't miss this tour! Also great coffee at the cafe 🙂
  • I visited Red Earth Opal about 8 years ago for a mine tour and loved it so much I brought the family 900km away from home to do it again. We attended the mine tour, black light tour and Opal cutting demonstration. The whole family loved what Red Earth had to offer. After driving through a few other Opal towns and checking out their tours Red Earth was the best by far, I highly recommend doing all the tours Red Earth have to offer, you won’t be disappointed. Also the best coffee in town.
  • What a great mine tour. The owner/ guide was very informative. He has a great delivery, very funny and sharp as a tack wit. Loved the whole experience. Well worth it and would definitely recommend to everyone.
  • Great coffee in the outback and freshly baked scones.. cakes.opal sales and tours.. unsure why they are selling Nepalese jewellery.. such to local goods
  • Great, informative interesting tour. Graeme was humorous and knowledgeable. Most enjoyable.
