Wolgan Valley

ABOUT: The Wolgan Valley is a majestic deep walled treasure trove for photographers. Drive from the main highway all the way to Newnes from the Castlereagh Highway about 35km stopping at various lookouts & points of interest. The Wolgan Gap has great views down the valley, there is a great stream at the far end of the valley and endless shots of rock walls and monolith rocks enroute. Golden light hours and mist are great combinations too for photos.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: Bring a range of lenses and filters and a tripod as there are many different scenarios as you travel through the valley. The golden light hours require as usual tripod and good set of grad filters.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Easily marked from right turn (from Lithgow) on the Castlereagh Highway at  Lidsdale.
