Wolgan Valley, Newnes and surrounding areas

This is a longer day tour that takes us on back roads, heading toward the majestic views of the ancient Wolgan valley, stopping for photos and historical observations along the way. The tour then proceeds down into the Wolgan Valley area to admire the sheer cliffs, the natural environment and to learn about the shale oil mining activity in the Newnes area. Lunch is provided along the way.

Depending on time spent in the Wolgan valley, a Great little Detour will see us climb along one of the many escarpments high up in the hills behind Lithgow. You’ll see some great stone sculptures and learn about the history of this part of the Blue Mountains – one of the most westerly points in our area.

For the more adventurous Guests, a return trip through the Sunny Corner area is possible, or a short historical tour of the Lithgow area is possible, weather and time permitting.
