There are 2 cottages - The Inspectors & The General Managers. Both sit adjacent to one another & are located on a 300 acre property, at the foot of majestic sandstone cliffs. The property backs onto the Wollemi National Park and is at the head of the Colo R.
It also encompasses the "Ruins" of the oil shale mine which closed down in 1952. The property lies on the extremities of the township of Glen Davis, which when the mine was operating supported a vibrant community.
Tours operate every Saturday @ 2pm (meet at the front gates) or by appointment.
It is relatively isolated, and offers a magic experience of getting away from it all and just chilling out in spectacular scenery or seeking out as much adventure as one desires-
Capertee Valley is listed as 1 0f 2 best birding locations in Australia out of 50 top world sites, in the US book - "Fifty Places to go Birding before you Die" by Chris Santella.

The Inspectors Cottage has 4 bedrooms + sunroom with single bed. The General Managers has 3 bedrooms + sunroom with sofa lounge. Both have been renovated and each house accommodates 7- 9 people. All have ample heating and bedding with all modern facilities - new bathrooms and kitchens - all fully equipped for maximum comfort. Wildlife is plentiful. A great place for exploration, bushwalking, photography, sketching, star gazing, abseiling, or simply relaxing in nature
We have had many a birdwatcher, artist, photographer and friend, who vow they have never seen anything quite like it before - as good as anything anywhere in the world, and it has all been kept a secret, except to those who know better. It is the second largest valley in the world, after the Grand Canyon. So for an unforgettably different experience - you can relax and do nothing or you can do everything and only 3 hrs from Sydney.
