At the Australian Opal Centre showroom there is so much to see and do! Experience rare fossils made of opal from the Age of Dinosaurs, discover precious opal gemstones and unique outback communities, and learn all about the world of opal mining and how to cut and polish an opal.
You can also witness the beginnings of a remarkable museum we are building on a nearby opal field, enjoy our intriguing gift shop filled with unique and beautiful items and souvernirs, and meet a dinosaur from long-ago Lightning Ridge!
Have your photo taken with Russ, our resident Muttaburrasaurus, who has ducked through the window to say hello. Don’t worry, Russ is a herbivore, he only eats our garden!
You'll find us behind the orange door at:
3/11 Morilla Street, Lightning Ridge
NSW 2834, Australia
Phone: (+61) 2 6829 1667
We’re open from Monday to Saturday, and look forward to seeing you when you're in Lightning Ridge, the home of Australia's magnificent Black Opal.
