Glamping at Rebel and Michaels was everything we hoped it would be! The tent was cosy and very cute and the facilities were all we needed especially considering we had the luxury of heading over the the bore baths each evening before bed. Rebel and Michael are extremely knowledgeable about the area and about opals and paired with their excellent hospitality they make the perfect Lightning Ridge hosts I would recommend this stay to anyone with an excitement for opals and a love of nature!


Worth it 100% would definitely recommend


Camping at charlie’s camp was a wonderful experience. Rebel and her husband are wonderful hosts and know so much about the local area and the opal mining industry. There is also plenty of fossicking opportunity at the camp ground.


We had a great time staying here. The Bell Tent was great, the site was awesome. Met the great animals, including the frogs! 😉 Rebel did a lovely job hosting and it was a great spot to be in to get into town. If you want a rootsy, warm hearted place, then YUP 🙂


Amazing experience in lightning ridge! Rebel and Michael were so friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel right at home. The tent was lovely inside with everything to make you comfy and cosy. Would 100% stay again next time I’m in town. Thank you!


What an excellent way to spend time in Lightning Ridge. The tent was so comfortable and in the middle of winter was warmer then expected. Rebel and Michael went out of their way to make sure we were fully stocked with wood for our fire pit and had water bottles on hand to ensure we were warm. We were well and truly occupied with the fossicking around the property and patting Rusty the resident pig. We were so stoked that Michael let us check out his fossil collection. The property was in a super convenient location. Would definitely visit again when in Lightning Ridge.


We had a great time. Micheal was a wealth of knowledge on both opals and fossils which added to our trip.


Rebels’s property was absolutely fantastic! Located close to many of Lightning Ridges attractions, the glamping tent is very well appointed, super comfy and warm and cosy. Rebel was incredibly friendly and welcoming and had heaps of great tips for discovering all Lightning Ridge has to offer. A must stay when you’re in town!


Absolutely loved my (Email hidden by Airbnb) munication with Rebel was fast and easy. The glamping tent was so cosy and comfy, and Rebel and Michael were fantastic hosts. Oh, and make sure to say hi to Rusty,the pig! A wonderful place to stay and explore all Lightning Ridge has to offer. Tip: Just make sure you have Telstra on your mobile in Lightning Ridge otherwise service is non-existent.


Super lovely hosts, the Yert was so glamorous and comfortable and we love the little opal pieces we found out the front too! We miss Rusty the pig already 🙂
