We dropped in for a quick visit but ended up being there for two hours. The tour is well worth it. The staff are great.

I am 15 years old and have just returned from a central australia school tour, we visited the mine and stayed in the residence which is also part of the mine. It was fascinating to see how they live underground. However, my favourite place was the gift shop, the opals are beautiful, I was able to purchase a ring, and a beautiful opal necklace for my mother. The opals are exquisite and pricing is affordable, good price variance.
A must to visit.

Good place to see the underground tunnels made by prospectors when mining for opals and where they live underground. Very informative video presentation given in the underground theatre.

Toured the mine. Extensive with guides very informative. Part of the mine is a residence and you can imagine living there. Good gift shop with plenty of opals at a large price variance. Well worth a visit. Would have given a 5 but the exit tunnel was smooth and a little dangerous. Floor needs to be roughed a bit to allow grip.

We did the guided tour which was far better than I expected. Our guide was an old miner that explained how it all works and how it is to live in a "dugout". He was open to lots of questions and gave a very informative tour of the mine. Fantastic
