Many Sydneysiders who regularly escape the urban jungle for the delights of Central NSW, feel a little sheepish about Lithgow and Oberon.
Their minds calibrated to driving three hours for fresh fields, they’ve been bypassing Lithgow and Oberon for years on their way to somewhere else.
We’ve all faced that classic short break dilemma of juggling the maximum time away with the minimum time getting there. Lithgow and Oberon are two great solutions. High adventure two hours from the Big Smoke. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
And the little most people know about this region – coal mines, blast furnaces, power generation, timber milling and weapons production – does not bring a skip to the heart of the vacationer. But the blasting you’re most likely to hear these days is the shattering of preconceptions.
Lithgow and Oberon dangle endless adventures – on the water, on a bike, on foot, even underground.
