Photographer's Note

Another in my outback New South Wales series from a 1997 trip (scanned from negative).
White cliffs is very isolated and no where near any large town. It is an opal mining town with much activity being underground. We stayed in an underground B&B where when they needed more rooms they just dug an extra one. A door from near our room opened into their mine. I've never slept in such a dark room!
It is all quite surreal.

On the surface are mounds of earth from the mines as well as various windmills, aerials and abandoned equipment, in this case a rusty old truck - they are everywhere.
