Lapstone is a suburb on the eastern escarpment of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. Elevation 160m . Lapstone is located 62 kilometres west of the Sydney CBD in the local government area of the City of Blue Mountains and is part of the federal electorate of Macquarie. Lapstone consists mostly of stand-alone housing and has a few public facilities. At the 2016 census, Lapstone had a population of 961 people. Lapstone was originally bought and developed by Mr Arthur J Hand, an Alderman of the Blue Mountains City Council.
Lapstone is the first town in the easternmost escarpment of the Blue Mountains. Its name comes from the many water worn stones in the area that resemble those used by cobblers to work the leather when making shoes.
Blaxland Lawson and Wentworth, were the first Europeans to explore the Lapstone area, Climbing up the Lapstone Hill reaching Glenbrook Lagoon on 12 May 1813, on their successful trek across the Great Dividing Range.
The first road was built by William Coxs and a gang of convicts up the Lapstone Hill through Lapstone and across the Blue Mountains about 1815. (A plaque on the site of the old Cox Road can be seen off Governor Drive at the M4 junction). The Cox road was replaced by “The Western Road” across Lennox Stone Bridgeup the Lapstone Hill in 1833, and following the railway 1867 “The Great Western Highway”. The Highway is now the main road up Lapstone Hill and across the Blue Mountains.
The Suburb of Lapstone was developed in the 1960’s, Mr Arthur J Hand, an alderman of the Blue Mountains Council brought the land to develop the suburb. The Railway Station was opened in 1964 to service the new housing estate.
Darks Common became a public reserve in the 1970s to prevent further housing development, the leading voice in the conservation of the area was local Micheal Dark, son of author Eleanor Dark and her husband Dr Erick Dark. The reserve now protected by council bares the name of the family.
There are many walking tracks throughout the common, the Spur-Line walking track leads to the Glenbrook Creek and views of Glenbrook Gorge at Bluff lookout. Lapstone Oval is located inside Darks Common.
