Yep, the Big Miner is a great photo opp but the real gems are inside. And I’m not just talking about opals. Husband and wife team, down to earth, unique jewellery made onsite and great value.

What a lovely opal store with such friendly owners and they have such good quality opal products. You must take a photo with the big miner!

We found this by accident while looking for something else. Got out and took a photo. We did not go into the opal store behind it.

Sorry about the pun but this is one big statue and well worth a photo snap - Instagram. The whole place is friendly and would recommend a visit here.

This is a magnificent statue and way bigger that I thought - it surely took some skill to create it!

The shop was closed when we went which means we couldnt check out the Opals on sale but, the BIG MINER is easily seen from the road and accessible for photos

We went here a whim just exploring the town. Got a pic with The Big Miner and headed in the store for a browse. The lady behind the counter was an absolute gem!!! Spoke of the history of her mining family and showed us pictures of them actually mining and her husband cutting & making the jewellery sold right there. No corners cut or over priced tourist junk. This place is the real deal. The quality of each hand made piece was amazing. Our browse became a buy taking away a gorgeous piece and bundles of info!!! Literally go here, it's the best!!!

High quality pieces of all prices ranges made right on the premises. Lovely couple who are happy to share their knowledge of the opal industry. Do yourself a favor and go and meet them.
