Home of the Black Opal

Lightning Ridge is an outback mining town famous for its rare black opals. On the edge of the NSW outback, it is the world's main source of the most coveted opals.

Family owned and operated, at Crocodile Caravan Park we are proud to offer you a range of accommodation during your stay in Lightning Ridge. We have grassed powered sites, onsite vans, and Standard or Ensuite Cabins. We provide clean, accessible amenities as well as a coin-operated laundry.

Our camp kitchen and entertainment area is fully equipped along with free gas BBQs, TV, stereo and plenty of tables and chairs. In winter we enclose and heat this area so everyone can stay warm and cosy. Join us here for Happy Hour at 5pm daily where you will be joined by your hosts Lionel and Deb.

Freshen up in our swimming pool during the summer months or walk to our local shops, pub, post office, chemist and news agency. For peace of mind, we have 24 hour video security surveillance of the park.
