Yowah Opal field is on the edge of the town of Yowah. There is a public fossicking area, so yo u can try your luck. The best places have been taken by miner's with leases. The Yowah nut opal is what you are looking for. Some local mines have tours. If in town check to see when the local opal markets are on, and the miners bring out thier wares, best chance to see some opal.
There is a bore in town for water.
