  • An explanation of opals including the different types and quality.
  • Underground dugout home – contrasting examples of an early hand dug and modern machine dug Modern Dugout.
  • Let us explain the reason and differences to living underground.
  • As well you’ll get a 10% Discount on Jewellery not already discounted and Complimentary Tea/Coffee after your tour.
