Blast Furnace – Lithgow

Congratulations to Lithgow on receiving the recent grant to allow an upgrade their blast furnace.  Lithgow and this Blast Furnace record the beginning of the iron and steel industry in Australia. The furnace was established in 1886 by William Sandford and operated until 1928 when production was moved to Port Kembla. The site has now been converted into a park around the remains of the pump house and the furnace foundations. There is a pleasant walk around Lake Pillans Wetland adjacent to the park (information courtesy

Forestry is a major industry of the Oberon area. Country noted for cool to cold winters with frequent snowfalls. Excellent area for Autumn colours, stark winter scenes and verdant green countryside spring and into summer. Abundance of roads both sealed and unsealed that are highly suitable for vehicle TVC’s. Many areas offering an intriguing, mysterious ambience for a feature or TV drama. Excellent examples of small saw-milling/logging villages.
