Noodling is sorting through dirt left by opal miners in search of stones they have missed. There are places where areas are set aside for tourists.

Myhusband and I recently visited Lightning Ridge and went noodling for opals on a free pile of opal dirt near the infomation centre. We had been on a tuor and shown what to look for. Mostly we found some lovely pieces of potch, the one colour common opal. It was a lot of fun. Some people have apparently found nice opals there but althoug we did not we were happy with our modest finds.
No, I haven't.
I have never heard of the term noodling, nor did I know that searching for leftover opals was an attraction. Any similar attraction I've been to, like old mines, don't allow anything to be removed. I think noodling would be fun, I'd love to give it a try!
No. It sounds likefun though.
Sadly no I haven't or even heard of the word 'noodling'....maybe one day I will have to give it a go.
No, but it sounds like fun.

I have one a few occasions, but not for many years. One of my most exciting finds was an opalised fossil shell.
