Lightning Ridge is on Castlereagh Highway (B55)
Lightening Ridge has a very unique way of helping visitors find there way around the area, to see the attractions. They have car doors painted in four different colours with arrows pointing in the directions you need to go to see the points of interest. Make the Information Centre your first ‘port of call’ when you arrive in town and pick up a map of the ‘Car Door’ routes plus opening times and entrance costs to the attractions.
For trivia buffs, the Australian actor Paul Hogan, who played the role as Mick Dundee in the Crocodile Dundee movie series, was born in Lightning Ridge on 8th October 1939.
