From the extreme to the extraordinary, Australia’s harsh and remote outback is a brutal and ever-changing beast, particularly in the battle for its most precious gemstone – opal. The blood, sweat and tears don’t always pay off, but in the massive fifth season of Outback Opal Hunters, all that is about to change.
The hit series returns Thursday, 8 October 2020 at 7:30pm on Discovery and follows six opal-hungry teams across three states on their quest to find a fortune. It’s a lucky start to the season for some when one team finds $120,000 worth of opal in a day, while another uncovers the most valuable single piece of opal in the history of the series.
Outback Opal Hunters is produced by Prospero Productions for Discovery with assistance of the State Government of Western Australia, Screenwest and Lotterywest. To date, the series has entertained audiences in more than 100 countries and territories, including the US and the UK.
