Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Been to Coober Pedy quite a bit and decided to venture into this unassuming building… Wow! Wasn’t expecting that. An amazing place and a lot bigger than we expected. Booked the tour and that was amazing. The guide (Zoe, a local girl) was fantastic and really has a lot of local knowledge. Would highly recommend a visit (and the tour) to anyone who visits Coober Pedy.

We visited this place as part of a tour group, it was very interesting. We enjoyed the video at the start, exploring the underground house, and learning all about the history of opal mining in Coober Pedy. My children really enjoyed it and were captivated the whole time. Highly recommend.

We were a group of 10 and had a guide booked. Tatiana showed us around the mine and museum whilst giving us a lot of information. The mine was decommissioned in 1970 but houses some traditional miners quarters and a more modern version of the underground house. Great to compare both. The mine is well lit and wide- not claustrophobic at all. A few low rooflines so watch your head. Interesting to see how modern machinery changed the mining tunnels too. Of course there's a gift shop at the end, with opals to purchase. The tour began with a 20 min video about how opals were first found in Coober Pedy.

We were lucky enough to see some flowering Sturt's Desert Pea out the front of the mine entry too.

A comprehensive overview of life and history in Coober Pedy was provided on the tour. We learned about the opals (naturally!) but also about life living underground. Our guide was informative and friendly explaining the different types of opals and what to look for in quality. There is a shop where opals can be purchased with prices to suit every budget.

Lovely little museum, very informative about the land, history, and how opals were found. We did the underground tour, this was good, however hard with young children that don't sit still.

Opals in the shop were expensive, but it was definitely lovely to see and experience.

The staff were nice and friendly

I'm glad to hear you had a mostly enjoyable experience at Umoona! It's always a bonus when staff are friendly and approachable; it makes the entire experience more pleasant. That's exactly what we strive for. Thank you for taking the time to share your review! It's beneficial for both future visitors and Umoona Opal Mine itself.

I visited this mine as part of a tour.
The tour itself was worthwhile however visiting the shop less so.

I asked to look at an opal. I’ve done my reading and knew it would be expensive.

He told me the price and said he wouldn’t get it out unless I was a serious buyer. As I researched using my phone and was unsurprised at the equivalent price in pounds he walked away.

I saw a tray ranging around up to $2000 and another tray with the $45,000 and could have been asked if I was serious or shown something in between. Neither of those options were given.

Disappointed given the beauty of the gems.

Visited on Friday 5th May. I was on The Ghan and this was part of an excursion, guide was informative about life underground. Shopping for opals was not my thing, so headed outside to explore more of the town.

Cooper Pedy is in the heart of opal mining country; a drive around the countryside is amazing for all the dug up areas.
The Umoona Mine experience, however, was pretty mundane. There is a place you can "prospect" for opals but aside from "salting" with worthless material, of course there is nothing to be found; otherwise it would remain an active mine!!
There is one place along the tour where you can see what an opal vein would look like but you can't prospect there (naturally).
Aside from the area, we had the same information presented in Melbourne and the cost of opals in Melbourne was much more competitive. I was amazed at the exorbitant prices they were charging here; admittedly the quality was high but it was at least 30% higher than for comparable opals in Melbourne. I suspect they feel they have a captive audience with the bus tours which I was on.
In addition, the lunch they served was abysmal. Again that may have been the result of being on a large group bus tour.

I found this interesting while other underground mines focus on the mining side of things the focus here was more on the ancient history of the area. There was lots of information on the huge inland sea that was here in ancient times and there were displays of fossils that had been found in the digs.

Loved this place. Very interesting walking into the mine, and they have more than sufficient opals on display for sale. The best part was the tour of the mine from a very informative young lady who also lived undergroiund and shared some of her stories of living underground. Would certinly recommend this tour
