About Yowah

Population: 142

Opal is the Australian National Gem and the township of Yowah is a “Living Gallery” with the story of Opal everywhere you turn. Opals of Yowah are world renowned for their beautiful colours and magnificent patterns. This little township’s point of difference is the “Unique Yowah Nut”. You can test your skills on the 9 Hole Golf Course and rest afterwards with a coffee at the RTC Café before sharing a meal at the Community Fireside Barbecue where everyone is made to feel welcome.

Be sure to Obtain a Fossickers Licence, venture into the Fossicking Area and you could be lucky enough to find your own Opals to take home with you or have them set at one of the Galleries while at Yowah.

Feeling tired after a day of fossicking? Why not relax in a hot Artesian Bore Bath and take in the magnificent evening stars at the “Artesian Waters Caravan Park” or feel the benefits of these therapeutic mineral waters in the Yowah Artesian Spa. With two pools, the first warmer than the second, these pools, which are cleaned daily, are the perfect spot for relaxation and enjoying the serenity as the sound of the naturally heated water from the Artesian Basin falls from the mining hoist.

Find your way to “The Bluff” and marvel this wonder of nature with 180o views and scenic sunsets. This is definitely a land of beauty.

With 90% of the population being small scale miners there is no shortage of Galleries and Shops. Look for the signs and drop in to the unique style Galleries. Birdwatching – Why not take a Birdwatching tour and be amazed by the number of birds that inhabit this region.
