Artist's Description

The old Hotel still stands and is now a Museum, the caretaker lives on site & there are Cabins for people to stay, and a lovely camping area. We found the Museum interesting and heard a fascinating story about the enormous amount of money that was put up by wealthy land owners in the early 1900’s to make oil from shale in the Newnes Valley. The Hotel was opened in 1907 for the workers then living in between the towering escarpments at the end of the valley. Where the houses and shops had been built to create the town, but now a historic site of ruins.
