Lightning Ridge Heritage Cottage

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Lightning Ridge Heritage Cottage Museum is a 1932 miner’s hut that lets you ‘step back in time’. It is full of memorabilia and you can purchase historical booklets plus select craft.

The Museum features a relocated and refurbished 1915 nurse’s cottage in the backyard and is a tribute to all bush nurses. The illuminated tableau of Nurse Lucy in the front windows attracts daily attention and with permanent and changing displays extending onto the wide verandah, it’s a place for reflection. The patio is spacious with comfortable seating and the backyard features mining icons in a garden setting. This is a quiet place off the main street for conversation and or lunch
