Capertee Valley

Daily Telegraph:  'Forget the Grand Canyon. The second biggest geological marvel in the world is right here in NSW'.

"SURE, the US has the Grand Canyon, the geological marvel that stretches 446km across Arizona at a width of 29km and a depth of 1.6km — but the second-largest canyon in the world is right here, barely three hours’ drive from the centre of Sydney.

The Capertee Valley, northwest of Lithgow, is actually 1km wider than the Grand Canyon, but is not quite as deep or long.

Its rock formations are sensational, its lookouts and bushwalks afford sprawling views, and it is home to a wide array of birdlife and wildlife."
