The village of Rydal is located 15 minutes from Lithgow and 45 minutes east of Bathurst. It is set in a lovely little valley with rural, farmland countryside. Rydal has a population of about eighty. More people live on surrounding farm properties.

There is a hotel and two churches, but no shops. The nearest shops are at Wallerawang about ten minutes drive away.

In recent years, the community have banded together and planted thousands of daffodils and now celebrate the annual “Daffodils at Rydal” festival.
