Wow what beautiful amazing people. Thank you Michelle & Kosta for taking the time to share some of your lifestyle stories of building your opal mine and creating such a unique show room. Well worth a visit.

I wandered up and down Hutchison during my unintentionally long stay in Coober Pedy, and these women, mother and daughter, were the most fun I found. The VW bug outside is worth seeing, even if you don't want an opal.
