With most of this June long weekend expected to give us some lovely winter sun, why not become an honorary tourist and support our local attractions? There’s plenty to choose from to fill a day or two. Most of the places are run by the fantastic volunteer network that are kindly giving their time to allow us all to experience the attractions. Reacquaint yourself and your family with our local treasures and discover why Lithgow really is such a beautiful region.
