Fitz Roy Iron Works

The Fitz Roy Iron Works was the first iron works in Australia, which operated from 1848 to the 1890s, establishing the industry in this country. The enterprise struggled to be successful over the subsequent decades, but assisted in the establishment of the iron industry in Australia.

You can visit this historic site seven days per week in the underground carpark.

The exposed remains of the protected site are located in the underground car park of Highlands Marketplace. These remains have been conserved, maintained, and displayed with permanent public access provided as part of the interpretation, communication, and celebration of the history of this significant place.

The new Historic Walk is a self-guided walk focusing on the Ironworks that helped shape the town of Mittagong.
