Lithgow is on the western edge of the world famous Blue Mountains National Park.

The Park forms part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, and it protects an unusually diverse range of vegetation communities. There are many rare and ancient plants and isolated animal populations tucked away in its deep gorges. The Park is a vast and very special place.

When you drive from Sydney to Lithgow you can choose between two spectacular drives through the Blue Mountains National Park.
From Richmond take the Bells Line of Road and from Penrith the Great Western Highway via Katoomba and the Three Sisters. Both are two of the most iconic drives in the world. Many people drive to Lithgow one way and take the other road upon return. It’s a wonderful drive.

The rugged beauty of Blue Mountains National Park provides a wealth of recreational opportunities for car-based sightseeing and bushwalking.
Special places to visit in the Blue Mountains National Park include The Three Sisters, Euroka Clearing, Evan’s Lookout and Murphy’s Glen.
Extensive bushwalking tracks and scenic lookouts are available throughout the park. For the more adventurous rock climbing, abseiling and canyoning are permitted. Access to the park can be made from Mt Victoria, Clarence, the Bells Line of Road and Great Western Highway.
