Blast Furnace Opening
With the completion of the final stage of lighting and amenities works, Blast Furnace is now open by night!

“The amazing LithGlow Light and Heritage Festival event on 12 May 2018 showed what a fantastic place Lithgow Blast Furnace is, and how much the local community loves it. Several thousand locals and visitors enjoyed a wonderful night of music, entertainment, light and sound,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie.

Council has now just completed the final stage of works that include lighting around the site and the installation of accessible toilets. Funded by Council and a matching grant from the Commonwealth Government’s Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) program, administered by the NSW Government, Blast Furnace now offers an even better experience for the community and visitors and a unique event experience.  

These works aim to activate Lithgow Blast Furnace as a cultural heritage destination and venue for events, performance and exhibitions.

A lighting strategy was developed to highlight Blast Furnace’s unique heritage features and includes handrail lighting so that people can move through the ruins of a night and pathway and carpark lighting to make it more interesting and safer for visitors. Power has also been installed for events.

A new fully accessible toilet block has also been installed. “There were quite a number of people in wheelchairs at the LithGlow event, able to move around the site and through the ruins along accessible platforms and pathways, something that simply wasn’t possible before. The installation of accessible toilets now makes the site even more accessible and open to a greater range of visitors. It also increases its capacity to hold future events,” concluded the Mayor.
