Andamooka Dukes Bottlehouse Museum

The unique Andamooka Dukes Bottlehouse has been built from discarded beer bottles and is now a museum featuring displays of opal related mining equipment, opals and historical artefacts. Entry to the museum is via the Australia Post Office shop. Information and visits can also be arranged to view the small White Dam Opal Field settlement. Since opal was first discovered in 1965, this field has produced some of the area's finest gemstones. While at the settlement you can also see the late Bill McDougall's Ettomogah Pub. Both sites are located a short ten kilometres from Andamooka. Souvenirs, refreshments, tourist information and accommodation are available at the adjacent Andamooka Dukes Bottlehouse Motel and the post office shop has banking and bill paying facilities.
