Opal Fes­ti­val

Western Times - - NEWS -

YOWAH is host­ing its an­nual opal fes­ti­val from July 14–16 on Har­le­quin Dr, Yowah.

The fes­ti­val will host a num­ber of opal stalls, in­clud­ing rare per­sonal opal col­lec­tions, as well as fresh food, mu­sic and danc­ing.

The lo­ca­tion is fully catered and li­censed for the week­end and also pro­vides other at­trac­tions such as raf­fles, spe­cial guests, walk-in mine tours and a wind­lass race. Vis­i­tors will also be able to view opals indige­nous to the area, with world-class spec­i­mens of Yowah nut opal, iron­stone ma­trix opal and Yowah boul­der opal on dis­play.

The event is ex­pected to draw in­ter­na­tional crowds in­ter­ested in pur­chas­ing from a fine col­lec­tion of the re­gion’s best opals. Lo­cated two hours drive from Cun­na­mulla on a sealed road, all gen­eral in­quiries about the fes­ti­val should be di­rected to Colin Lawry on 07 4655 4060.
