Having Fun Wish You Were - Capertee Valley by 


Here are a couple of locals out for a stroll, unfortunately the did not stand still so it was not possible for a HDR shot.

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 wildlife. 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 a 360° panorama, of the dramatic and breathtaking valley. The Capertee valley is located in The Gardens Of Stone National Park

The Blue Mountains if a World Heritage Area , a few hours by road west of Sydney and are a must when visiting Sydney.
