2 Day Opal Adventure – Lighting Ridge


Within 2 hours flight time off the Gold Coast, Lightning Ridge is a remote opal mining town located in North Western NSW in the Walgett Shire, approximately 800k from the Gold Coast by road. The Ridge is synonyms with opal mining down under, being one of the few places in the world to produce the scarcely rare black opals. But this is just one of its many charms. This fantastically quirky place is everything you’d want from a genuine, ‘how ya goin’ outback town, bursting with personality that will have you constantly turning your head as you try to take it all in. You’ll see underground mines, opal fields, golf courses, artesian bore baths, John Murry murals, homes made of beer bottles, off the grid camps, local flavours, bush storytelling, spectacular landscapes and more. What really sets this rural town apart from the rest is its eccentric habitants whose stories draw you in further with every beer.
