Located in the Adelaide CBD, our beautifully simulated underground opal mine for you to explore, bringing to you the ‘Coober Pedy Experience’ with the convenience of an Adelaide Rundle Mall location.
You can see the veins of real opal as they would naturally occur in the rock and explore different regions of opal mining throughout the Australian opal fields.
Take a few minutes to sit down and watch the short documentary on opals, explaining the different types, the regions where they are found and how they are formed.
If you are lucky, one of the friendly jewellers may be in the process of cutting and polishing the raw stone on the equipment located in the mine area, and you can watch this amazing process of shaping and polishing these beautiful opals first hand!
