Glen Davis Blue Mountains

Glen Davis is situated in the Capertee Valley. From 1938, the town became the centre of an Oil Shale Industry. The post office for the town opened on 1 March 1939.[6] The township was abandoned in 1952 because shale oil was not viable in a non-war, non-government supported economic environment. After the closure of the oil shale mine, the skeleton of a town survived in the form of some properties, a post office and a shop or two that survived intermittently.

Whilst in the valley take time to visit the Glen Davis Works & Simmo’s Museum.
