White Cliffs is a pioneering town, with it's own unique character, arising on the discovery of opal in the 1890's. Once home to over 4,000 souls, it offer the visitor a glimpse into the tough early days of opal mining. Located only 80 km from Wilcannia, off the Barrier Highway, there is more than 80 km of sealed road, with the rest of the dirt sections slowly being sealed. A visit to White Cliffs can also be linked with Mutawintji or Peery National Park.

The main pastime for visitors is fossicking for opals. In addition the Heritage trail will give you an insight into the past. Mudmap and Heritage Trail brochures are available from most participating outlets. Tours are available through some of the dugout homes, opal showrooms and the historic opal fields.
