Lithgow is situated inland from Sydney, and has some of the best natural scenery in the whole of Australia courtesy of the Blue Mountains, along with some stunning National Parks and sweeping valleys. The Capertee Valley is said to be second only to the Grand Canyon in terms of size, demonstrating the magnitude of the Central Tablelands. Car hire in Lithgow is popular with those wanting to explore the Blue Mountains National Park and the Wollemi National Park, with Lithgow at the border of both. Hiring a car in Lithgow is available from the Downtown area of Lithgow as well as locations throughout the region.
Lithgow is home to immediate attractions like Hassans Wall, which is just a short drive from the town centre, hiring a car in Lithgow is vital in order to navigate the surrounding National Parks. Hassans Wall Lookout provides views across the Hartley Valley and the Blue Mountains, and is found just off the Hassans Walls Road. The Wollemi National Park sits to the north of the town and the Blue Mountains National Park to the south. For something a bit different, rent a car in Lithgow and south to the Jenolan Caves - less than an hour away on the Jenolan Caves Road.
Lithgow has the privilege of being situated on the B59, stretching west from Sydney. This means Sydney and its iconic harbour are less than 2hours away, but most visitors come to Lithgow to escape the city and cruise through the National Parks. Take the A32 southeast and you'll come to Katoomba via Blackheath. In Blackheath, Govetts Leap is one of the must see sights in the Blue Mountains. Next stop Katoomba, where you can visit the Echo Point Lookout - marvel at the Three Sisters rock formation and the sublime Jamison Valley. Park up and walk to the dizzying heights of the National Pass, or simply enjoy the scenic drive.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
