Oz Trip - Day 3

Day 3 – 4/5/2012 - St George to Lightening Ridge
Another short day. Even though we slept in until about 7:30, we were on the road just before 9am. First stop was Dirranbandi for smoko and we made Lightening Ridge for lunch. We checked into the Opal Caravan park which was only a couple of hundred meters from the Artesian Baths. After lunch we had a swim in the baths. It was fantastic. The water was a constant 40deg. So relaxing.

After the swim we dropped our wet gear off back at the camper and then headed out to have a look at some of the “Car Door” tours that they have in town.  Basically there are car doors painted a colour that you follow around some dirt tracks.  Interesting to say the least. On the “Green Door” tour we came to a lookout over the surrounding landscape.

There were quite a few “interesting” buildings all around the areas where people have sunk mine shafts for opals. Here is one of them
