The staff were very helpful in explaining the opal mining process and showing us the different opals that can be found. There is some high quality jewelry to see and it is worth having a look.

Brought a pair of earrings from this shop. It's a family affair. I was served by the mother and son who bargained with me and knocked the price down and a bit, gave me some free stuff too. Opals are beautiful
