Welcome To the Rylstone Region


The Rylstone Kandos region, located just 3 hours drive from Sydney on the western edge of the Blue Mountains, is one of those rare, uncrowded places that combines old-fashioned friendliness and genuine charm with good modern food, great places to stay, and breathtaking scenery.

Whether you enjoy bushwalking, fishing, canoeing, photography or birdwatching, would like to explore some history, visit a winery or taste some olive oil, experience a small town agricultural show or just find a great cup of coffee ... Our area is too good to miss.

The area sits astride the Great Dividing Range, and is a gateway to the World Heritage Wollemi National Park to the east; the scenic Capertee Valley to the south; and the deeply carved upper valleys of the Goulburn/Hunter river system to the north.

Our area includes Running Stream, Turon, Ilford, Charbon, Clandulla, Olinda and Bylong and the towns of Kandos and Rylstone.
