Opal Caravan Park
Opal Caravan Park, just a few minutes from Lightning Ridge in northern New South Wales, is an oasis in the outback where holiday makers come from far and wide to enjoy genuine bush hospitality.
Lightning Ridge is famous for the black opals which have been mined in the area for over 100 years. Visitors can explore the history of the town, tour opal mines, visit local galleries and enjoy great local eateries.
Guests at Opal Caravan Park will find themselves just 200 metres from Lightning Ridge’s natural artesian bore baths. These baths are free, open 24/7, and are heated to a constant 39 degrees by water from 1 km before the surface.
The staff at the tour desk can also recommend other quirky experiences to check out in the area, including the nearby heritage cottage, the Bottle House and Amigo’s Castle.
Opal Caravan Park offers a range of accommodation options for guests. The cabins are modern and spacious and available to families or groups of all sizes. If you’re travelling solo or as a couple, you can choose from the executive cabin or the deluxe queen cabin, both of which sleep two are contain a kitchenette, private bathroom and large, comfortable bed. For families of four, the deluxe family cabin is the most popular, although there is a two bedroom cabin also available for a little more privacy. And for larger families or groups, the deluxe larger family cabin is perfect, with bunks for the kids and a well-appointed kitchen and dining area.
If you’ve arrived with the caravan, motorhome or tent, the park has plenty of powered and unpowered sites, some even with ensuite bathrooms for your convenience. All guests can use the park swimming pool, as well as the spacious camp kitchen. Cook up a meal while the kangaroos graze on the grass outside and the kids take a dip in the pool – a perfect outback experience.
Whether you arrive in town after a long drive from Sydney or Canberra, or you fly into Moree and make the three hour drive down, you’ll find a warm welcome waiting for you at the Opal Caravan Park.
