The on-site opal mine tour is the highlight of your stay at Riba's. Conducted most evenings (minimum of 5 people required) for guests and visitors. We will show and explain how opal mining works and you will learn how it has changed from our pioneering days. Learn how the first miners made their fortunes and what kinds of dangers and challenges they overcame. See the modern ways of mining and get to know how to find your own precious stones. A great option for those short on time and Coober Pedy's only evening mine tour. Tour operates every evening from 7pm in winter and 7:30pm in summer. This tour is a must!
Have an entire morning up your sleeve? Why not join our full town tour? Starting at 9am it runs for approx 3 hours. This tour is the number one tag-along tour in Coober Pedy and operated by an award winning guide. You'll see a "dugout" (underground home), an opal mine, drive through the field, watch opal being cut and polished and then go "noodling" (fosicking) for opal yourself. The tour runs for approximately 3 hours and is unmatched for value. Check out our web site at http://www.followmedownunder.com.au for more information.
