  • Quite nice, is an experience out of the ordinary. If you're willing to get a little dirty and work to achieve an "Opal" is worthwhile, you have to get it for yourself, you just provide your beak to dig yourself, is that what makes it more fun.

  • It was really fun, in addition to being a highly recommended experience. Since you start the climb in 4 x 4 vehicles because the path is only stone, the fun begins. When you get to the mine give you a hammer for you to seek your own opals on the heap of stones and with the help of our guide we found some. In the workshop not explained anything, rather we were taken to see if bought something. It is worthwhile to know and have fun a while. Touched us a moderately hot and sunny day, and we did the activity without problem. It is an open air mine, not as we know them normally and have to descend.

  • We had the opportunity to go to the mines of Opal, it was a very good experience, Sr Hector explains you perfectly all about opals, we took the tour from his workshop, we arrived at the mine in car 4 x 4 are as 25 minutes, during the journey you can see landscapes incredible, arriving at the mine they explain and lend you a hammer for q you seek an Opal or quartz (very cool experience) I suggest comfortable shoes, water and if you go late carries a sweatshirt because it cools a bit. Give you the opportunity to learn about and buy this price stone.
