About Rylstone

Rylstone is a heritage village on the western edge of the Blue Mountains, 238 km north-west of Sydney. The town acts as a gateway to the World Heritage-listed Wollemi National Park to the east and the scenic Capertee Valley to the south. The local area has many fine stone buildings and is fast becoming known for its wineries, olive estates and gourmet foods.

Pick up a brochure for the Rylstone Heritage Walk and learn more about the town's colonial-era sandstone buildings, including its four stone churches and early stone and timber cottages.

One of Rylstone's most impressive natural attractions is Nullo Mountain, where you'll find breathtaking views overlooking the surrounding valley. Head a little farther out into the Mudgee area to Goulburn River National Park for camping, swimming and hiking.

If food and wine are what's drawing you to this region of Country NSW, you've got plenty of choice at nearby Mudgee which also has plenty of accommodation.
