Andamooka - Cities, Towns and Localities
In 1930, two drovers from Andamooka Station saw the beautiful gemstones on the hillside, discovering the Andamooka Opal Field. Andamooka Opal is among the finest quality by world standards, with the ‘Opal Matrix’ being unique to the Andamooka region.

Located some 600 km north of Adelaide, Andamooka is the gateway to the Torrens Track, via Mulgaria Station to the Farina Ruins. It connects to William Creek and the Birdsville Track via Marree and the Flinders Ranges via Lyndurst. Although this is private property, permits are available to access the Torrens Track.

Tours are available to view modern day mining and noodling is permitted on the mullock heaps. Early miners cottages are listed on the State Heritage Register and is popular with the tourist. If you have a 4WD, the track to Lake Torrens, White Dam and Torrens Track are not to be missed. Also of interest are Roxby Downs and the Olympic Dam Mine.

There are festivities during Easter and the October long weekends.
