Capertee Valley, NSW

Surrounded by the wonders of world heritage listed wilderness, the Capertee Valley is the world’s widest canyon.

This dramatic and breathtaking valley with grassy woodlands and rolling country is surrounded by sandstone escarpments. The valley floor sits at about 300m above sea level with cliff tops up to 700m. This deep chasm has been carved over 600 million years.

With tranquil vistas and serene mountain landscapes the Capertee Valley is abundant in flora and fauna, providing the perfect opportunity to encounter nature in a natural environment. See intricate, ruin-like pagoda landforms that often resemble beautiful lost cities and temples, and the flat-topped mesa Pantoney’s Crown rising majestically from the valley floor.

Capertee campground in Capertee National Park is a great place to set up a campsite for birdwatching or walking.
