It’s hard to imagine a better place than the Opal Capital of the World, for a festival that is unique in every way. The Coober Pedy Opal Festival celebrates the end of a long hot summer and the commencement of the opal mining season.

This year’s festival is planned to be action packed. Stay tuned for more information.

Coober Pedy not only produces an estimated 80% of the world’s opal, it boasts over 45 different nationalities living in the locality and is one of the most multicultural towns in Australia.

The Opal Capital of the World is also unique for its underground living lifestyle and famous landscapes, particularly the Breakaways,  featured in many films.

The Opal Festival celebrates all these features and is the biggest local event of the year.
