Hartley Vale is a tranquil rural area located on the western edge of the Blue Mountains, together with the historic township of Hartley and Hartley Vale, they are located in the Kanimbla Valley. You can get there travelling south-east from Lithgow, north-east from Oberon or through the Blue Mountains, passing Mount Victoria with the stone bridge that was built in 1832 by convicts.

The township is located 700 m above sea level and approximately 133 km from Sydney, with restored convict-built sandstone buildings and was once the site of mines and industrial facilities. By 1856, the township had doubled in size as a result of the gold rushes, being the major stopping points from Sydney to the Turon Goldfields. The future of the town ended in 1869 when the railway line across the mountains was routed through Lithgow. Today, it is a tourist destination, being managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.
