I recently attended a kids party here and was pleasantly surprised at how amazing it was. For years I have been driving past never actually visiting this 'gem' of a place. What a perfect venue for a birthday party, or even just to visit. There is something here for every age, the kids were very much having the time of their lives doing a little gem fossicking. Lovely relaxing atmosphere, friendly place. Hope to come back again soon.

I found the most gorgeous necklace for myself here, and because the prices were so amazing I ended up purchasing another for a dear friend. A special thank you to Cooggan for such a nice chat and for taking the time to show us around. We will definitely drop in again on our next visit to Australia for sure!

Happened onto this place by chance as we were visiting the Skin shop up the road. Thought we would drop in to have a look, expected to be a few minutes. Wow, what a hidden gem (excuse the pun) of a place. We didn't see the kids, they were too busy looking for gem stones in the huge area full of rocks outside. Whilst they were busy my darling husband purchased me a very special opal necklace, just gorgeous. So, couple of hours later and a very happy family. Will be back on the holidays with the children to ease that holiday boredom. Very cost effective way to entertain them might I add, very clever.

My kids love this place. Stuck for something to do over the holidays and want to keep the kids occupied, we come here. They have a whole area where the kids can do a little fossicking for "precious gems". It is a really affordable way to burn up a couple of hours. And whilst they are busy digging amongst the rocks, you get to have a browse in their amazing shop. The most beautifully crafted opal jewellery, beautiful atmosphere and for me just not enough money to spend here. But I love looking. And if you book in, you and your family can watch how opals are cut at one of their live shows. There is something here for everyone :)
