Season 4

Thursdays from 6 February at 8.30pm Channel 070

The treasure hunt is back on as crews of resilient, opal-hungry miners put everything on the line to unearth a fortune in some of Australia’s harshest and remote landscapes. A mission not for the faint-hearted, this season of Outback Opal Hunters has a major shake up with a new-look line up of crews. While there are some familiar faces in the mix, we meet some new miners that well and truly have opal fever. The series is at the forefront of this unique industry where the stakes are very real, as crews risk it all in their pursuit for these precious stones. From Lightning Ridge (NSW), Opalton (QLD) and Laverton (WA), the new season brings new locations into the fold; Mintabie (SA), White Cliffs (NSW) and Grawin (NSW).


Opals are one of the most valuable gemstones in the world and a million-dollar bounty is hidden beneath the scorched ground of the outback, just waiting to be discovered. Pushing their bodies and bank accounts to the limit, the crews tunnel through the dangerous underground shafts, battle relentless heat, face deadly snakes and spiders - prepared to pay the ultimate price, hunting the ultimate reward: a fortune in opal.
