Fossickers Cottages


Fossickers Cottages - the perfect place to stay, relax, and experience Lightning Ridge first hand. Meet locals who are passionate about their town and black opal - the stunning gemstone that is mined from the depths of what was once a great inland sea.

Opal Cottage is a sweet, one bedroom cottage overlooking the old town opal fields. Featuring a perfect view to the west, you are in for some of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen. Opal Cottage is set off by an amazingly eclectic garden, established nearly thirty years ago!

The Harlequin Cottage is a cosy, comfortable two bedroom cottage. A large, fenced front yard, private garden, and outdoor area (with barbecue) make it the perfect place to unwind after those long days.

Flagstone Cottage sleeps up to eight, bright, clean and comfortable. Three bedroom - everything you need for a great stay.

Centrally located you can discover 'The Ridge' on foot ... if you can drag yourself away from the oasis that is Fossickers Cottages.
