The Opal Cutter
The Opal Cutter offers high quality stones and individual jewellery over the internet. Barbara and Edi are mining for boulder opal at Koroit in Queensland and are sourcing their opal from Coober Pedy in South Australia.

Located 600km north of Adelaide and 130km east of Leigh Creek and unique to the northern Flinders Ranges, or indeed Australia, this 610sq km Wilderness Sanctuary, operated by the Sprigg family, contains one of Australia's most spectacular mountain views and numerous Advanced Ecotourism accredited guided tours.

Desert Cave Hotel - Coober Pedy Hotel Accommodation
The Desert Cave Hotel is the world's only underground international hotel. We're located at Coober Pedy, which since 1915 has lured those who seek the elusive opal, found in this vast outback semi-desert area.
