Come and stay in The Old School House at Lightning Ridge – circa 1912, relocated from town to the Three Mile opal field.

It’s in a unique position less than a 5-minute drive from town, on the bitumen and 500 metres on a gravel road used by miners.

Nestled in bushland, with kangaroos, a wallaby and birds, this is not your luxury getaway, but an adventure in a real stay on the opal fields of Lightning Ridge.

This has been a loved 3 bedroom family home and could be your next destination

The space
The Old School House was moved to its current position in 1996 as an addition to our home and growing family. It has lovely wide verandahs and is in a peaceful setting.

Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia

The places to see on the Three Mile are 'The Big Opal and the Chambers of the Black Hand. Go for a walk and see if you can pick up any opals on the fields or watch the kangaroos in the early morning, listening to the birds and at night the sky is ablaze with stars.

During your stay
I was born in Lightning Ridge on my parents property 'Lorne' and our block is part of the original property. I have seen the 'Ridge' grow from a small mining town to the wonderful, unique community that it is today. I work at Community Health so I'm happy to catch up with you when I can.
