Whilst you're in White Cliffs, we want to make sure you enjoy yourself. Accommodation ranges from the Underground Motel, The White Cliffs Hotel, B&B's, Farm-stays, Caravan Park or Free Camping in the Potch Gully. Enjoy fish and chips at the General Store on a Friday Night or dine with the friendly locals at the Sporting Club on a Sunday Night. Take an Underground Mine Tour, enjoy coffee and fresh scones at the Red Earth Cafe, browse the Jewellery Stores and perhaps find that special Opal that will remind you of your outback experience. Then there are the Paroo-Darling and Mutawintji National Parks within a short drive from White Cliffs which are well worth the visit.

If you would like to contribute a little of your time to this preservation project and enjoy yourself in doing so, or if you have any questions, I would love to hear from you.

Please email me with a rough idea of when you would be available, giving me as much notice as possible, four weeks preferably, and I'll send you some background reading on the history of the site. Warm Regards Graeme Hanigan Secretary
