Well maybe not the full nip and tuck but a touch-up all the same. Gone is the plastic sign, replaced by a far more impressive 3d wooden lettering. Gone also is the flat screen tv, allowing for cleaner lines and a more rustic, earthy look.
The flat screen television with Waradah’s promotional video has moved to behind the counter. The Australian ferns and fauna, and the rustic panels framing the screen , gives visitors the impression of bringing the Australian bush inside.
Visitors will also notice a new opal counter. Since the late 1800’s, Australia has dominated opal production with more than ninety per cent of the global output. The National Opal Collection is the leading supplier of Australian opals including black opals, white opals and boulder opals as well as exquisite opal jewellery. And although Waradah has been stocking opals (mainly doublet and triplet opal) the new counter offers visitors a substantial increase in the depth and range of what was previously on offer.
The greatest change is to the theatre with new 2mx4m images projected onto the wall, framed by the Australian bush.
