Lightning Ridge Holiday Park offers a great camping spot right in town. Beau and Belinda are lovely Managers who are more than happy to make sure your stay is comfortable. IGA was just over the road, with the two main streets within easy walking distance.

Right next door is the Water Park and heated Diving Pool (only open during the warmer months). Also within walking distance are a range of eateries, galleries and jewellery stores.

In addition to the above features, the Lightning Ridge Holiday Park reception serves as a Tour Booking Office and a pick-up point for local tours. Just ask the staff about fossicking for opal onsite and they’ll point you in the direction of the rock pile. It’s handy to take a spray bottle, so that you can spray the rocks and really see the glimmer of the opal shine through.

During the peak season (April – September) you can enjoy FREE Pizza Nights at the Camp Kitchen every Friday. Saturday or Sunday nights are usually Roast Night for $12.50 per head.

    Hi we arrived holiday park stayed two night not very happy no good for kids to play there no pool no fun got nothing and we got stuck two more nights my car broken down piss me off and pay extra nights we should go opal park right now no helpful still we are here depressed from hell

    1. Ohh bugger, sorry to hear about the car breaking down. We did consider The Opal a well, purely for the pool. But in the end we were busy around town and doing the Car Door Tours, plus met another family in the park for the kids to play with. You win some, you lose some.

  2. It is amazing to know that there are many things to do around Lightning Ridge Holiday Park. Being pet friendly and having a water park sounds like an added advantage. And Fossicking sounds interesting – I didn’t know that was even a thing!

  3. Lightning Ridge Holiday Park sounds like tons of fun…I mean who doesnt love a free Pizza Party! I know that the water park is a big bonus for kids but I have to say, the Opal Hunting sounds awesome. I had never heard of the term Fossicking, so I just learned a new vocabulary word today and now I want to go Fossicking for Opals! If by chance you find any, do you get to keep them?

    1. We also learnt all about the term ‘fossicking’ once we travelled around and got to put it into practice finding both opals and sapphires. Yep, you sure do get to keep the ones you find.
