Spent 3 nights comfortably tent camping at the Peacocks well run facility. Spent 1 day at the wall and 1 day in the tailings. The wall gave us nothing but a tough education in the world of opal minining, but the tailings rewarded us with a variety of precious and common opal specimens. However, Terry had her dreams rewarded by finding a black fire opal limbcast roughly 3 inchs long by 1/2 inch wide with only minutes left in the tailings. Had a great time, thanks to all the staff for their hospitality and guidance.

Just got back for digging in tailings Sunday. Had a great time and found 5 pieces of fire opal and few other interesting pieces. The Staff was great from Julie in the shop to Pui out in field! Plan on going back asap!
Thanks for great time!

We appreciated the friendly owners and the great information that they shared with us. We enjoyed going along with a school group to the mine and watching the kids dig in the tailings. Several children found opals. We hope to return and dig for opals!
