WOLGAN ROAD PHOTO ALBUM

The following is a set of photographs of scenes on the road to Newnes.
Please note that most photos were taken before the road in the valley was sealed. These will be replaced once replacement photos become available.

Wolgan Gap Road at about 3km from bottom of gap
Wolgan Gap, where the road enters the Wolgan Valley. For the first few kilometres the valley is narrow and the cliffs stay close at hand.
Road near 'airstrip' (No.1) Road near 'airstrip' (No.2)
Before long, the valley broadens out.
At this point, the western cliffs form part of the Australian 'Great Dividing Range'.
Early morning winter scene as the Wolgan Valley broadens out.
(The road here has since been sealed.),
Woolpack Rock
The road eventually turns east-north-east. Ahead lies Woolpack rock and the northern wall of the valley.
Entrance to Emirates Resort Road near Koopartoo
The entrance to the Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa. At this point, the road to Newnes turns left and heads northwards. The Glow-worm tunnel is in the gorge in the right background while the railway formation crosses the talus in the centre background. The walk to the Glow-worm tunnel starts from the Wolgan Road a further 1.5km towards Newnes. For the last 8km to Newnes, the road follows the Wolgan River through the outskirts of Wollemi National Park. Care is needed here as the road is narrow and winding. Wombats and wallabies are additional road hazards when travelling at dusk or at night. This photo was taken near the start of the Glow-worm tunnel walk.
