Further to our camping adventures mentioned in the last post, we also went to Lightning Ridge. It was AMAZING. So very different to anything I had seen before.
The bottle house. The light inside from the sun shining through this glass would be amazing to live with. I wonder how long it took to drink the beer in the bottles?
In any given direction you would see either mounds taken from mines, shafts, or shacks.
A beer can house built in 1977. I thought this was wonderful!
A Church knocked up for a film set.
And a castle made by Amigo. It even has dungeons under that connect to this mine.
Part of me wants to live here.
I didn't find my own opal, but I bought some in a small pair of earrings :)
If you have small children there is still plenty of things to see and do, but don't go in Summer for a visit, it was already verging on too hot for my two smalls.
