Lake Lyell Recreation Park


Lake Lyell is a beautiful destination within two hours drive from Sydney. It provides visitors with access to the lake via a concrete boat ramp for waterskiing, fishing, kayaking and general boating. The park has both powered and unpowered sites, hot showers, free barbecues, and a children's' playground. It is a magnificent bush setting, and only 10 minutes from Lithgow.

The park also has a number of picnic tables, catering for overnight visitors and day visitors.

Lake Lyell provides cooling water for both Wallerawang and Mount Piper Power Stations. The Lake is connected to Wallerawang Lake by pipeline and hence to Wallerawang and Mount Piper Stations.

Lithgow Small Arms Factory Museum


In 1906 the Australian Government decided Australia should be independent from Britain for her defence needs. The Lithgow Small Arms Factory commenced production in 1912.

This museum, situated in the grounds of the Small Arms Factory, celebrates the rich history of Australia's first high precision mass production facility and its people.

Over its years of operation Lithgow SAF accumulated military small arms from all over the world for technical appraisal. These and the Factory's own production form the basis of a most comprehensive collection of rifles, sub-machine guns and ordnance.

To keep this vital factory going between wars, an amazing array of commercial products were manufactured. The Factory saved the floundering Australian wool Industry during the 1930s, manufacturing parts for shearing handsets, replacing expensive English equipment.

In 2007, collector Ron Hayes donated a magnificent handgun collection. The diversity in the Ron Hayes Gallery will amaze even those disinterested in firearms.
