The Coober Pedy Gem Trade Show is a Great Outback Show in the Opal Capital of the World. It provides the opportunity for miners, retailers and wholesalers from around Australia and the world to showcase their products to the industry and the broader public. Opal is Australia’s national gemstone. Although there is a lot of excitement around the large scale mining activities surrounding Coober Pedy, opal will always be the heartbeat of the town. The Coober Pedy Gem Trade Show aims to develop the sustainability and prosperity of this colourful industry full of character and characters. Specialising in rough and cut opal, the trade show will coincide with the Opal Festival, offering visitors a vast array of entertainment options. The Croatian Club will once again host the Gem Trade Show providing a professional, air-conditioned environment for the numerous local and national exhibitors who will be able to showcase high quality opals at trade prices to international and domestic buyers.
