A stunning tourism hub

“Lithgow a hub for visitors to the Blue Mountains region, bringing more people to the area that stay for longer periods of time.”

Lithgow has the potential to become NSW’s hottest new tourism destination. Surrounded by the unparalleled beauty of the unprotected Gardens of Stone, Lithgow has a fantastic opportunity to secure its future as an eco-tourism hotspot. 

Destination Pagoda is a visitor management proposal for a 39,000 hectare Gardens of Stone State Conservation Area. The untapped value of Lithgow’s Gardens of Stone backyard lies in it diverse and unique scenery, as well as rare plant and animal life. These values can be protected and enjoyed by thousands of people through the addition of recreation facilities that will enable families to get close to nature while still enjoying the sights of the Lithgow region. 

A new Gardens of Stone State Conservation Area with tourism development will be a win for the economy, community and environment of Lithgow and New South Wales. 

Over 10 years the proposal will bring


visitors a year to the Lithgow region


million per year for the local economy


full time local jobs created
