In the far reaches of the Blue Mountains, Lithgow is the gateway to the wonders of New South Wales' Explorer Country. Nature reigns supreme in Lithgow. Aside from excellent opportunities for both canyoning and bushwalking, Lithgow's Zig Zag Railway is a spectacle in itself. Apart from the spectacular views its winding expedition takes in, the Zig Zag Railway was also the first ever railway link to western New South Wales. Travel a little further to Capertee Valley, Australia's largest enclosed valley, to be entranced by a perfect piece of Australian landscape.
