Lachlan Valley Way is a New South Wales state highway running from Booligal on the Cobb Highway to north of Yass on the Hume Highway (M31). From Booligal it runs in a north-easterly direction for about 76 km to Hillston. It then follows the Kidman Way (B87) for about 35 km before turning off to the right and proceeding a further 57 km to Lake Cargelligo. From there it continues to the north and east through Euabalong to Condobolin. This 93 km section of road has three named parts, from west to east. They are Lake Cargelligo-Euabalong Road, Lachlan Valley Way, and Condoblin-Lake Cargelligo Road. From Condoblin the Lachlan Valley Way turns south-east towards Forbes, a further 98 km. From Forbes it continues south-east through Gooloogong to Cowra, a further 90 km. It then turns south through Boorowa, to end after another 119 km at the Hume Freeway north-west of Yass.
