Lightning Ridge - Black opal country

Spent the day looking around Lightning Ridge and we have decided that this is where old caravans, trucks, cars and any obsolete piece of rusty machinery goes to die. Never seen so much rusty old junk in one area. Interesting place , but we will be ready to leave tomorrow.
       Brian the opal miner , nice bloke who told us lots of stories (still didn't buy one of his old rocks )
This church was purpose built in 1987 for an arthouse movie and like everything else around here has collected a range of rusty junk around it , including the compulsory dilapidated caravan.
                           General state of most of the vehicles around town !!!
