How to get there

Newnes is in the Wolgan Valley – north of Lithgow.

The event is in Newnes, NSW.  You access the event hub via the Wolgan Valley Rd.

From Sydney

Head west from Sydney across the Blue Mountains, either via Katoomba or via Richmond and Bell. Pass Lithgow and take the Castlereagh Highway toward Mudgee. About 3-4 kms along the Castlereagh Hwy is the Wallerawang Power Station on the left and a service station on the right. Watch for the advance signs saying “Lidsdale”. Turn right here onto the Wolgan Road. Drive through Lidsdale – be careful of the speed through town – it is 50km/hr. There is often a speed trap here. ¬†Follow this road all the way to the end – it is 34kms. The road to Newnes is now sealed up until the old corn paddock!

From Bathurst

Follow the Great Western Hwy to the Castlereagh turnoff to Mudgee and then as above.

From Mudgee

Follow the Castlereagh Hwy toward Lithgow – turn off to Lidsdale and follow directions above.
