Hey Dom,

Thanks for that info too! Some of those names have come up in my readings, but some are new to me so I'll be sure to do some more research!

I'm not planning my trip until the second week of August though, so I'll still have plenty of time left to come up with a plan of attack! It'll be two weeks off work, a week of driving out there and finding opal (hopefully), then a week of driving back vis Inverell and GI for sapphire (hopefully).

Cheers,
Dan

Hey Dom;

Thanks heaps for that info! I'd be very keen to hear how you up there in June, but I'll be sure to give the information centre a buzz and see what they might be able to recommend.

I had considered White Cliffs as a fall back, but I've just always had my heart set on a trip to the Ridge to try and noodle up some of that fabled Lightning Ridge opal, so it's absolutely my preference if it's going to be possible!

Thanks again Dom, very helpful and I am very much looking forward to hearing how you go in June!

Cheers
Dan

Hey Dom,

Where else is there to fossick in the Ridge? From everything I'd seen the grawin dumps were the only place you could get away with it, as virtually every other parcel of land up there is under lease. Any advice would be fantastic, and very much appreciated!
I've wanted to get up there for years to try and find some opal, and to have that rug swept out from under me a few months before I was finally able to do it was really rough I'm not going to lie!
 Cheers
Dan

Anyone have information on this?? I was planning my first ever trip out there for August, so if that's the case I'll unfortunately have to change my plans  :-[
