The Andamooka Observatory is a family-owned tour business that can create personalised and private itineraries that take guests into one of Australia’s last Outback frontiers: the Andamooka Opal Fields.
The bespoke premium tours are ideal for guests who want a pristine desert experience, sensational starry nights, fine food and wine, vast open spaces, abundant wildlife, and marvel at Australia's national gemstone: Opal.
They can customise private tours to include delicious bush tucker banquets and beverages, searching for opal with LED (Ultraviolet) flashlights, opal mining, paleontology, opal cutting lessons, birding, sunsets, stargazing, and nocturnal tours.
Andamooka opal is renowned as being the finest quality opal in the world. Most guests choose to fly to Andamooka via Olympic Dam Airport for convenience or due to time constraints. The flight between Adelaide and Olympic Dam takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
