Attraction details
Owner description: A unique gallery of over 350 sandstone carvings plus murals painted on the sandstone walls in the sandstone level above the opal level of an old opal mine. Ron Canlin is the artist of this amazing attraction, 12 years passion and still carving daily, a real work in progress. After touring the carvings, Trevor Hudson with 30 years experience in mining and prospecting then takes you down to 2nd level where he will draw on his wealth of knowledge to give you a very informative talk on the geology and formation of opal, the drives and shafts were hand dug by the old timers over the past 100 years. Not to be missed, winner of the NSW 2008 Hidden Jewel award.

i grew up in lightning ridge. when i first went and had a look, i couldnt beleve i was actualy spending money to go down a mine. It was the BEST money i have ever spent on a touristy thing EVER. I recomend it to anyone i know of who is going to the ridge for a look. my only advice is to take a camera, and take extra batteries. you will want to take lots, and lots, and lots of photos.

It was my girlfriends first time down a hole and she was pretty relaxed about it all. If you knew her, you would apreciate what a big statement that is. Its prefect for just about anyone, and by far the best tourist atraction there.

This will be the experience you will never forget, around every corner there is yet another realistic and so creative creation waiting for you to enjoy.
This is so worth going I went a year ago and I am still thinking and recommending people go there on there next holiday. If you are a bit funny on stairs there is a lift available and this is a real must visit while in Lightning Ridge and you will be like me planing your next trip back to Lightning Ridge to see what new rooms Ron has created he is a marvel.
