Capertee Valley

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

Sandstone cliffs dominate the escarpment, drawing down into a deep chasm carved into the environment over millions of 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. Under the sandstone layer stretches an enormous layer of coal and oil shale. 

Rising majestically out of the valley floor is a monolith in size and spectacle. The impressive peak, Pantoney’s Crown, beckons the keen walker to climb its summit. From the top is a 360 degree panorama of the dramatic breathtaking valley.

Capertee campground in Capertee National Park is a great place to set up a campsite for birdwatching or walking. To find out more, or make a booking, visit www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au
