This fantastic tour of the far western NSW outback will awaken your senses. We'll take you on a journey through the outback roads to White Cliffs, where you'll learn about the history and footsteps of explorers, the barka, and opal mining while staying underground in your own dugout room for the night. Day 1: We start our adventure north-east of Broken Hill, heading for the unique outback opal-mining town of 'White Cliffs.' This tiny community lives underground, while an eerie lunar landscape has been created above ground by years of mining for the elusive opal. Our White Cliffs tour allows us to meet some interesting outback characters! Local artist Cree will take you on a tour of the White House, followed by an opal mining tour and a night UV fossicking tour hosted by the original Outback Opal Hunters. Other points of interest include the Solar Power Station, as well as a number of mines and museums (depending on seasonal availability). While we tour around, why not try your luck 'noodling' for opal or purchasing a special piece from an underground shop. Tonight you'll be staying at the famous Underground Motel, which will be an unforgettable experience. (Facilities are shared). Day 2: Enjoy a heritage trail tour of White Cliffs and do any last-minute opal shopping before we start to return back through Wilcannia for morning tea and arrival back to Broken Hill. This one-of-a-kind tour package includes morning tea, lunch, nibbles, dinner, and breakfast, as well as entry fees and guided commentary.
