North of Bathurst in the hills is some old gold mining areas we'd been told were worth an explore.
First stop was Newnes Ruins Campground. 200 kms from Sydney through the Wolgan Valley
In 1905 a oil shale refinery was set up closed down in the 1930's. Almost everything was removed leaving a huge open campground fringed by gums and dwarfed by surrounding cliffs.
The views are spectacular at camp and we will come back here.
Located on the south east corner of Tasmania is a world class track with spectacular views - the Three Capes Track.
A 4 day and 3 nights wilderness experience with total distance of 46km the Three Capes Track is an easy to moderate grade hike.
A short boat ride in and out from World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site is breathtakingly beautiful. Pass by the Isle of the Dead, a small island where over 1646 bodies have been buried but only 180 of them marked which consists of staff and military staff.
