Lunatic Hill / by Ethan Astall

At the end of the Yellow Car Door Tour there is a gaping big hole in the ground which once was Lunatic hill. Since been open cut, back in the day out here it was approx 36 meters down before you hit the opal bearing level, 18m else where around the ridge. Blokes used to come out here and dig that 36m depth to find opal hence why everyone called them Lunatics because you’d have to be bloody mad to be underground that far.

Amongst reading history we galavanted about the afternoon looking at old rusted out vehicles and old camps.
