Guest Review

White Cliffs is an interesting place, with an opportunity to visit a working opal mine and experience life in a remote Outback town. The hotel is clean and quiet, burrowed into the hillside, keeping it insulated from the unbearable heat in the summer months. The rooms are generously-sized, and accessed via a labyrinth of corridors.
