Season 2

Thursdays at 8:30pm Channel 070

The treasure hunt is back on when Outback Opal Hunters returns to follow crews of resilient opal miners on their mission to unearth a fortune in some of Australia’s harshest and remote landscapes. From Lightning Ridge (NSW), Opalton (QLD), opal mecca, Coober Pedy (SA) and now Laverton (WA), the series is at the forefront of this unique industry where the stakes are very real, as these crews risk it all in their pursuit for these precious stones.


Old crews return, but the new season also brings some new faces. Back in the game are The Rookies, Justin Lang and Daniel Becker who recruit Justin’s fiancée Becky MacAllan; The Opal Queen, Kelly Tishler is joined by her brother-in-law Mark and friend Dwayne; Col’s Crew, Col Duff, Aaron Grotjahn and Greg Geran are back on a mission; as well as brothers, Peter and Mick Cooke. Plus as this season heads to Laverton in outback Western Australia, there’s a new crew in the mix, family crew The Piromanskis. Husband and wife, Pete and Vikki Piromanski team up with their son Adam, a firefighter, and his partner Cassidy to hunt for Fire Opal.


Worldwide demand has soared and opal prices have rocketed, making it one of the most valuable gemstones in market. A single stone can be worth millions of dollars and over 90% of it comes from just one place on the planet: the remote Australian Outback. Hidden beneath our desert plains lies a hidden bounty, 30 million years in the making, just waiting to be discovered.


Pushing their bodies and bank accounts to the limit, these crews tunnel through the scorched ground, battle relentless heat, face deadly snakes and spiders - prepared to pay the ultimate price, hunting the ultimate reward: a fortune in Opal. Join the hunt!
