Capertee Valley

Surrounded by the wonders of World Heritage listed wilderness, the Capertee valley is the world’s second largest canyon. Capertee, a small township at the top of the Valley has a Hotel, Accommodation, Petrol Station, Police Station & School. Take a look at the valley from the new Pearsons Lookout, just breathtaking!

  • Pantoney’s Crown sits in the middle of the valley, beckons the keenest walker to climb its summit.
  • More species of birds, than anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • The Glen Davis Shale Oil Works, located in the Capertee Valley, was one of the largest employers in the area. Producing gasoline, the operation was an important strategic resource during the war era. Today, the ruins of this once thriving industry can be toured every Saturday at 2.00pm.
