There are 4 cottages available within the amazingly scenic Capertee Valley - 3 hours from Sydney. Two of the cottages, only just completely renovated are situated at Glen Davis. They are within a property which includes the "Ruins" from the old oil Shale Mining Works and lie adjacent to the Wollemi National Park and at the head of the Colo River. The scenery is stunning, comprising majestic cliffs and wilderness. The other 2 cottages are located on a property 8 kms towards Capertee Village. Again the views are quite magnificent. There is a very comfortable large house and a small cozy cabin. Both are very suitable for birdwatching, sketching, photography, sky gazing, exploration, bushwalking or just relaxing. Internet:
