Look a little bit closer. Lithgow is set to surprise you.

On the western fringe of the Blue Mountains, just two hours from Sydney and at the gateway to the Central West, the Lithgow area is the perfect getaway.

Within minutes of the city itself, you can be walking through historic villages, visiting spectacular lookouts, sitting beside clear
flowing creeks or discovering the many beautiful valleys that dominate the region.

You’ll be surprised at the range of things there are to do in the Lithgow area and the wide choice of places to stay – from six star
with all the frills to camping with all the thrills.

Best known for its industrial heritage, Lithgow is also an exquisitely beautiful area boasting six national parks and rare flora and fauna.

Explore the Capertee Valley and Mudgee to the north, Jenolan Caves and Oberon to the south, Bathurst to the west and the Blue Mountains and Sydney to the east.

But most of all, stay a few days and explore the Lithgow area itself. It’s surprisingly close, surprisingly interesting and surprisingly spectacular...we look forward to making you feel welcome.
