Children fossicking for opals

Opalton, Queensland's Capital of Boulder Opal, also offers visitors the opportunity to fossick for opals.

Opal fossicking, like all other gem fossicking, requires a fossicking permit. These are available for a very reasonable price from the Department of Mines or from the Winton Visitor Information Centre in Winton.

For fossicking information, please contact the Winton Visitor Information Centre.
