#96 Newnes


Newnes is a relic town with plenty of relics.  Those who follow my Blue Mountains blog might remember a tour of the shale oil ruins that I showed a couple of years ago.  Of the town that used to be the old hotel is all that is left.

It is in the beautiful Wolgan Valley overlooked by the cliffs of the Blue Mountains which also now hides a six star resort.   You can enjoy it for $2000 a night or camp for free down the road. Either way I am sure you will enjoy it.

I will post Newnes as town number #96 at 100 towns sometime soon.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
