On Thursday, 25th January (46.3°C 🔥), Maya and Hans from Switzerland did our Premium Day Tour. They flew into Olympic Dam Airport at 8.10 am and had breakfast, lunch, opal cutting demonstration and opal viewing at the Andamooka Opal Showroom Underground Opal & Mineral Museum. At 4 pm, we drove them back from Andamooka to the Olympic Dam Airport, and then they flew back to Adelaide and off to Fiji. 🛩

Andamooka opal is renowned as being the finest quality opal in the world. We can customise private tours to include delicious bush tucker banquets and beverages, searching for opal with LED Ultraviolet flashlights, opal mining, paleontology, opal cutting lessons, birding, sunsets, stargazing, and nocturnal tours. Most guests fly to Andamooka via Olympic Dam Airport for convenience or due to time constraints. The flight between Adelaide and Olympic Dam takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
