White Cliffs

Opal fever ...

Come on a dusty journey out to one of the outback's more memorable towns. Settled and once thriving on the back of the illusive opal, White Cliffs still draws in the most optimistic of miners, and its quirky mix of locals certainly gives the tourists something to talk about when they get home.

Beat the heat and stay underground. The White Cliffs Underground Motel is rewly renovated and a night or two here will deliver a unique experience if you've never stayed under the ground before. Ask about the various tours you can do around town and do not leave before you've spent a couple of hours trading stories with the die-hards who'll you meet at the bar of the pub.

Good sealed strip, Avgas available. Phone Graham Wellings on 08 8091 6606
