Lithgow (28 km)
Hassans Walls Lookout, near Lithgow, is the highest in the Blue Mountains. Admire Mt Wilson, Mt York, Mt Tarana and Mt Blaxland as well as the pretty Hartley Valley below. To the south are the Kanimbla and Megalong valley and Mt Bindo. While there, go for a walk or ride around the lookout.
Blackheath (58 km)
The magnificent Govetts Leap waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. The 'ozone-laden' air of the Blue Mountains was promoted as a health tonic since the early 1800s, and when you get there, you'll realise why.
Kandos (120 km)
Kandos is a gateway to the wonderland of Wollemi National Park, the rugged home of one of the rarest plants in the world - the Wollemi Pine - and other endangered and threatened species of plants, marsupials and birds. It's a great base for bushwalking, water sports and enjoying the great outdoors.
