Quick Links

Getting to Lightning Ridge is easy from any of the east coast capitals and is a short drive north of Walgett, and while it is not on the Darling River, it is certainly a must-see destination while travelling the Darling River Run.

Lightning Ridge Car Door Tours

The Black Opal is unique to Lightning Ridge but it is not the only unique thing… the Ridge is also famous for its Car Door Tour so be sure to drop into the Visitor Information Centre for your guide to this special experience. 

These quirky journeys are Lightning Ridge's answer to 'self drive' tours and are a great way to start your visit to The Ridge.

The four tours are demarcated by colour coded and numbered car doors.
