Ample parking right next to the ruins. Enjoyed the signage explaining the history - easy to read. There are also benches nad tables to have a nice lunch. It is a very quiet and peaceful area. Wonderful photo opportunities too

This park is a nice way to break your journey. A peaceful area that houses relics of the old blast furnace that was our first. While it is need of some attention it is still worth a visit.

The remains of this blast furnace is an interesting piece of Lithgow history, and there is a small wetland nearby for a bit of a walk.

It is understood that Lithgow City Council intends to restore part of this facility to enhance tourist interest. I think it will be another Zig Zag Railway story.
