Discover the Blue Mountains, Sydney’s backyard playground.

A World Heritage-listed wilderness where ancient rock formations cast their golden glow over vast canyons carpeted in eucalypts.

A natural wonderland where waterfalls plummet into valleys clad with rainforest, and breathtaking views stretch to the hazy blue horizon.

A region where quaint, historic villages nestle amongst trees painted with the colours of the seasons, and creativity is inspired by the bounty of nature.

Experience wonders at Scenic World, where the glasstopped carriages of the Scenic Railway take you on a heartstopping ride into the depths of the Jamison Valley;  take a bushwalk along clifftops to spectacular lookouts; and discover unique cultural experiences, from ancient Aboriginal sites to modern street art.

Relax and take a stroll through the World Heritage listed National Park, or perhaps indulge in a slow lunch with a great glass of wine – there are so many choices, you’ll wish you’d stayed longer!

Now is the time to visit and see what makes this place so special.

Plenty of things to do

The Lithgow Blast Furnace will become the canvas for lighting artists to recreate the glow of the once-powerful blast furnace that was the heart of the iron and steel works in Australia 115 years ago.

Energy Australia has once again brought back the fireworks display that will feature a dazzling barrage of shooting stars high over Blast Furnace and Lake Pillans, culminating with a perfectly choreographed multi-coloured finale.

Lake Pillans will become a magical illuminated walking path that will take you across two bridges to see the Blast Furnace from across the lake.

This year’s musical feast will be a cinematic, post-electro, dream-rock experience from the band Sonori at 7.00pm. Their mix of mechanised rhythms, vintage synths, sweet soaring vocals, effective cello and post-rock guitars converge in a cerebral union of melody and beats.

The Blast Furnace will be the perfect backdrop for Carnivale Circus Troup to perform their specially created Fire Dance show for LithGlow 2022.

The event is free to attend with no tickets required. With limited parking onsite jump on the free shuttle buses from Main Street in Lithgow to arrive like a VIP. Bus stops on Main Street are close to free parking stations.

Gates open at 5.00pm with the Energy Australia Fireworks display at 8.00pm.
Food trucks from 5.00pm-8.00pm.
The free Shuttle buses will run until 8.30pm.

Join professional forager Diego Bonetto as he takes you and your family on a forest walk, uncovering the details of where to look, when to move and how to harvest edible mushrooms.

Part treasure hunt, part ecological awakening, this experience is like no other. The activity has been treasured for generations by the eastern European and Mediterranean cultures in Australia, making it a seasonal must-do to share stories and learn recipes.

Expect: a cheerful trip, a learning experience, outing in the magical pine forest, and take home all the mushrooms that you find.

What to bring: suitable clothing and shoes, water and snacks, a knife and a basket and your camera.

What we will do: You will meet in Hampton at 8:45 am and you will drive to the forest location together. They will provide a thorough tutorial on the what/how/where of mushroom foraging, you will visit 2/3 different locations, you will collect mushrooms and they will quality control everyone’s harvest. You can take pictures and selfies with the loot.
BBQ tasting of fresh mushrooms fried in oil with garlic and served with parsley and artisan sourdough, in the forest.

Too many mushrooms to go home with? You will have a box each to bring home your lot!
