Lithgow

The city of Lithgow is situated 144km’s north-west of Sydney on the western slopes of the Blue Mountains. Its history is linked with both the large coal deposits upon which it stands and the extension of the railway line over the Blue Mountains in the 1860’s.

Through the ages Lithgow has played host to many other industries including meat refrigeration, Iron, Steel, Breweries, Copper, Pottery, Small Arms and brickworks. Lithgow was declared a city in 1945. By that time much of the heavy industry was gone, although light industry continued to prosper and the population peaked in the years just after World War II.

Two of Lithgow’s best-known offspring are Olympic sprinter, Marjorie Jackson (known as the ‘Lithgow Flash’) and radio and television personality John ‘Roy Slaven’ Doyle.

Lithgow is a town full of the wealth provided by Heritage Buildings, History, Nature and Family friendly tourist attractions. Lithgow Visitors Centre is situated on the Great Western Highway. Enquiries can be made here concerning local attractions, operators, accommodation, maps and brochures. There are also historic photographs and displays of local arts and crafts.

Popular Events include 2 of Australia’s biggest dress-up Festivals, Ironfest and Lithgow Halloween.
