This is what our guests say about coming on tour with OUTBACK OPAL TOURS

We have done a self guided tour of the area before. However, doing it with local expert guides made it so much better. Learning the history of the area as well as their expertise in mining was fabulous. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough.

Sue WShellharbour, Australia

This tour is a fabulous way to spend a day in the Opal fields. So much to see out there and so much to learn. Our guide for the day Nat is so knowledgeable on the area and the subject. I would go again for sure. Highly recommend!!!

Julie CTea Gardens, Australia

Do this tour if you are travelling to Lightning Ridge. Out of the box experience, 5 stars easy.
I would reccommend to anyone including young people. Best travelling experience Ive had in a long time.
