Glengarry 'Hilton'

Pub in Lightning Ridge

About 70km southwest of Lightning Ridge, this tin shed of a pub in the middle of the Glengarry Opal fields is frequented by colourful local characters and tourists. There's pub grub and a handful of bunk rooms (from $25 per person) if you can't face the bumpy drive back. Check road conditions with the Lightning Ridge Visitor Information Centre before setting out.
