Sadly, the Winton Opal Show in July has been cancelled due to issues surrounding the pandemic, but all is not lost.
The Queensland Boulder Opal Association is just waiting for final approval from the Winton Shire Council to hold the show on September 26 & 27.
It would be great if they could pull it off as Lightning Ridge and the Gold Coast shows (held traditionally after Winton) have both been cancelled.
I will confirm the dates and outline the program when I hear more.
The bi-annual Opal Symposium which was due to be held in Cooper Pedy this year (2020) will go ahead next year. More on that later too.
So, if you are planning to visit the West in September watch this space for more updates on the Winton Opal Show.
