Did you know that The Opal 


Australia's National Gemstone?

Welcome to Lorne Holiday Station - Lightning Ridge

Lorne Station is situated on 10,000 acres, just minutes from the town of Lightning Ridge in outback New South Wales, Australia. Lightning Ridge is famous for mining Australia's national gemstone, the black opal. The caravan park offers a variety of accommodation to suit your budget and needs. We offer powered and unpowered sites for camping and caravans, cosy bunkhouses and also cabins to suit larger groups or families.

Lorne Station Caravan Park can offer you true country hospitality and something a little different.  There is plenty of wide open space at Lorne to explore on foot, whilst riding your bike or walking your dog.  We are pet friendly and we appreciate you keeping your pets tethered.

Lorne Station is just 5 minutes from the centre of Lightning Ridge township and only 200 metres from the white mullock heaps of the opal fields. Lorne is one of the only working stations in the area that provides tourist accommodation. You can enjoy a true outback experience at this quiet and scenic holiday retreat.
