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 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.
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.
  • Mariannes old school house and history of the area are what makes this a great place to stay in lightning Ridge, house was clean and the evaporative cool was great for the warm afternoons. Great location with only a short drive to most attractions.

  • The house was lovely, with everything we needed (including amenities for our kids). The neighbourhood is definitely a unique one, being out amongst the camps (rather than in town).

  • Staying at this unique place completes the Lightning Ridge experience. To be able to star gaze from here is just amazing.

  • I would say it is one of the nicest places to stay in Lightning Ridge. It is a bit old, but considering the location it is to be expected.

  • Fantastic place and lovely host. Very comfortable and close to amenities. Nice to be able to have a hot shower and a cosy bed after a day on the fields specking and getting filthy and dusty. 👌

    Sally2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sonja welcomed us and provided local knowledge/information. There was milk and chocolates in the fridge. The unit we stayed in was compact but very adequate for our 2-night stay. The garden is beautiful - Sonja must work hard to make it so nice. The view from the upstairs balcony is great - especially good for viewing the sky at night. We would stay here again.
