Lithgow

The small town of Clarence is located along Bell's Line of Road between Bell and Lithgow.

The Zig Zag Railway

The Zig Zag Railway is currently CLOSED. Hopefully it will open again one day soon!

Clarence rates a special mention as it is the home town of the famous Zig Zag Railway.

The Zig Zag Railway was constructed in the late 1800’s and took around three years to complete.

Clarence Railway StationClarence Railway Station

The technology of this famous railway was a remarkable engineering breakthrough of the 19th century, overcoming the steep descent of the Blue Mountains via a system of railway cuttings, tunnels and viaducts.

Not far from the town of Clarence you’ll find Clarence Dam in Dargan Creek Reserve a popular swimming and abseiling spot with sheer cliff walls and deep water. The dams were originally built to supply water for the steam engines on the Zig Zag Railway and the area is now a popular recreation spot. Some old metal works are still visible but are in a state of ruin.
