Day in Lightning Ridge

Tuesday, Oct 22, 2013 at 21:02


Today we spent our time travelling around the various areas in Lightning Ridge. We used their car door tour guide which is a series of maps and instructions you get for $1 at the Tourist Information. To assist finding your way around there are a series of car doors painted in the desired tours colour with numbers on them so you know where you are on the map. We also visited the artesian baths but decided they were too hot for a swim.
After lunch we went on a tour of a mine called the “Chambers of the Black Hand”. This is a mine that has been around for a long time and the current owner has taken upon himself to organise tours through the mine and to add interest he has carved amazing sculptures into the sandstone above the opal bearing dirt. They also have a large collection of opal jewellery for sale.
We capped off the day with a swim in the caravan parks swimming pool before dinner.
