Nettleton's First Shaft Look Out and Beer Can House / by Ethan Astall

At the end of the Green Car Door Tour you will find Nettleton’s first shaft which is an ode to the first bloke who decided to dig hole at Lightning Ridge to find opal and somehow for tourism doubled as the best spot in town for a sunset.

Also out here is the “Beer Can House” and you could probably guess that every piece of this building was sunk on site if not in immediate vicinity. The dwelling was built in 1970 and occupied until 1996 made from tinnies, concrete and wine and spirit bottles.

What better way to celebrate the end of the day with a warm bottle of Stones Ginger wine at sunset
