Opal Hut

At the Opal Hut we give the visitor the opportunity to see the unique Yowah Nut opal in the quaint atmosphere of a genuine miner's shack. All stages of opal production are on display.
As well as the Nuts there are pieces of opalised wood, gem grade crystal opal from Yowah Nuts and a large variety of picture gem stones. You will also see specimens of analid worms containing opal.
Apart from a few special pieces in our personal collection like 'The Fossicker' all display items can be purchased.

If you would like to drop in for a friendly chat, we are easity located on the corner of Matrix Drive and Bluff Road opposite the Artesian Waters Caravan Park.

In additon to our field display there is an on-line display at www.opalhut.com.au with comprehensive descriptions of the opal and mining at Yowah. a link from this page will take you to the Opal Festival showing activites at Yowah during this period and the spectacular entries in the Jewellery Competition which is part of the Festival. Another link from this page will take the on-line visitor to our Australiana Site showing outback life in the local area. If you can't drop in personally send us an e-mail.
