Competition information and Rules and Entry Form
 

The Yowah Opal Festival Designer Jewellery Competition was commenced in 1997 to begin to promote Yowah Opal.  Opal the Queen of gems is Australia's National Gemstone and Yowah is known for its beautiful and unique opal nuts - ironstone concretions which hold opal deposits in their centres.  Its popularity and value has spread world wide.   Like all opal, no two pieces are identical.  Pipe, crystal, Opalised wood and boulder opal can also be found.

The Yowah Opal Field is a small field in the southern part of the boulder opal producing region in Queensland, Australia.  It is approximatly 1050 kilometres west of Brisbane, capital of Queensland.  The first mining commenced at Yowah in the 1880's.

It was the 1960's before any real development of the field began and it has continued to grow.  Today visitors are welcome to come and visit and to fossick etc. as well as take part in the community activities and events.  The Yowah Opal Jewellery Competition is part of the programme for the weekend.
