Blast Furnace Park

Blast Furnace Park

The remnants of the Blast Furnace stand tall reminding us that Lithgow was the birthplace of the Australian iron and steel industry. Constructed in 1913, the Lithgow Blast Furnace, at its peak, produced 105,000 tonnes of pig iron produced primarily for use by the Trans-Australia Railway.

Recent improvements at the site have provided waling paths across the site and informative signage with images of how things used to be.

Pearson’s Lookout, just south of the village of Capertee affords one of the best views of the majestic Capertee Valley below. There are 180 degree views of the Valley with Pantoney’s Crown dominating the ground below. View the Gardens of Stone and Wollemi National Park to the south and up towards Kandos and Rylstone in the North. The Capertee Valley is the second largest enclosed canyon in the world and to get a bird’s eye view there is no better or more easily accessible place than Pearson’s Lookout
