The fastest driving route from Sydney with less traffic is to head towards Richmond NSW via the M2 and M7 motorways exiting via the Richmond Road turnoff. From Richmond travel through the Blue Mountains along the Bells Line of Road (approx. 58km) and take the Darling Causeway (approx. 10km) to Mount Victoria. Turn right at the Great Western Highway. Stay on the Great Western Highway for approximately 11km. You will descend the western side of the Blue Mountains and drive through Hartley, past Historic Hartley Village then take the next turn left on to Jenolan Caves Road (~24km) and then right on to Duckmaloi Road (~24km) until you reach Oberon.
