Lightning Ridge Opal Festival July 2022

Lightning Ridge Opal Festival July 2022

The Lightning Ridge Opal Festival has been an annual celebration highlight since back in 1971 and has continued to grow into the largest event on the opal event calendar ever since.

This marvellous event acknowledges and commemorates the culture and character of opal mining. With over 150 stalls showcasing everything from the oldest heritage through to the latest and greatest, there is no better, or more comprehensive display to be seen when it comes to our “National Gemstone”. This opal display brings together gems from every corner of the country.

Attracting over 4,000 people across this four-day event there is no shortage of things to see and do including the Opal Queen Ball.

We were blessed to have our own family arrive from Scotland and join us for the festivities. There is no greater joy than time spent with loved ones, and it gave us great pride to introduce them to the great Australian Outback for the first time. This was an opportunity to show the kids where their mother grew up and learn a little more about the rich history of the area and opal mining in general.
