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.

State Mine Heritage Park

State Mine Heritage Park

The poppet head towers above the first State Government owned coal mine, signifying the struggle to bring the black gold to the surface. The museums collection of memorabilia and artefacts depict working life in Australia’s coal mines.

Lithgow State Mine’s newest attraction is the spectravision presentation called “Fire in the Mine” and is the latest amazing exhibition at the Lithgow State Mine Heritage Park.

Listen to Marion Curry tell her moving story of the dangers faced by miners in their everyday work. The exhibition utilizes the spectravision technique to project a moving image into the display, an experience that needs to be seen to be believed.

Group tours at any time by appointment.
