Highways in New South Wales
East to west, the highway starts at Bathurst where it joins with the Great Western Highway. It proceeds via Blayney, Carcoar and Cowra. The highway then heads west through Grenfell to West Wyalong where it crosses the Newell Highway. It continues west through Weethalle, Rankins Springs and Goolgowi before terminating in Hay where it joins the Sturt Highway via the Cobb Highway.
The Mid-Western Highway is the most direct route between Sydney and Adelaide, however since the Hume Highway has been improved, the route via the Hume Highway and Sturt Highway through Wagga Wagga is probably superior and quicker despite being around 20 kilometres (12 mi) longer. The latter is also part of the Auslink National network as the defined route from Sydney to Adelaide.
