Welcome to the Andamooka Community Website

 

PLEASE NOTE: The web site has been moved to a new host and we are now able to create links to the missing minutes and newsletters etc. Your patience is appreciated while we get the job done.

The opal mining township of Andamooka is one of the world's major sources of precious opal.

Today, with a population of around 350 (estimated) Andamooka hosts a rich assembly of nationalities that live and work together in an environment that outsiders may consider harsh and resembling a ‘moonscape'. To local residents however, this is the ideal place to live, uncluttered and free of bureaucracy and hassles of city life.

Opal is still being found at Andamooka, though less than it was. There are still a variety of things for visitors to do. You can tour the opal fields, absorb the history, noodle among the dumps, tour an underground house or visit one of the many opal showrooms and buy directly from the miner or the cutter, thereby eliminating the middle man.

We invite you to explore our website and hope to see you soon exploring our amazing town.
