Hi! I'm Allan Watson and I would like to thank you for visiting my Newnes Services web site. You can now access this site at "www.newnes.info".
Do come and visit Newnes some day. The Wolgan Valley is very scenic and you will find Newnes to be a very interesting place. Most of the sights at Newnes, including the ruins of the oil-shale works and the Glow-worm tunnel, are open-access and can be visited at any time of the week. The Newnes Kiosk usually only operates at weekends, but may also be open at odd times during the week.
