Lightning Ridge Tours and Attractions

Astronomer's Monument

Take the time to browse this incredible feat of engineering and truly experience the eccentric mind of one of the Ridge's late characters.

The walls of this 'concrete folly' have been carefully and lovingly inscribed and you can journey through the mind of its creator and wonder….

Not open to the public – but stop and have a look and read about the builder on the front gate.

On the red car door tour you will find Amigo's Castle and the Astronomers Monument. These monumental constructions are a testament to Lightning Ridge's self taught architects and builders, be sure to keep an eye out on the fields for all the other unique homes
