Country Town. Wellington

Nestled at the foothills of the Mt Arthur Reserve on the banks of the Macquarie and Bell Rivers, Wellington is the second-oldest town west of the Blue Mountains.

Traditionally inhabited by the Wirrum Wirrum people of the Wiradjuri nation, Lieutenant John Oxley was the first European to discover the Wellington area after he came upon what he described as a “beautifully picturesque valley” which he named after Arthur Wellesley the “Iron Duke” of Wellington.

The Rock Lookout. Mulgoa

The Rock Lookout area of Blue Mountains National Park is situated within the historic Mulgoa Valley, only minutes from the bustling city of Penrith. A short track of a few hundred metres leads to ‘The Rock’ with superb views of the Nepean River. A longer track of 2.5 kilometres leads from the car park through swampy heath and Eucalyptus forest to Riley’s Mountain where more views of the Nepean Gorge and surrounds can be enjoyed by the keen walker or photographer.

Access throughout this section of Blue Mountains National Park is by foot (over uneven ground) from the car park at the end of Fairlight Road, Mulgoa. Please note: the last section of Fairlight Road is dirt/gravel road.

Wellington Caves. Wellington

These caves offer a number of exciting filmmaking possibilities. The large cave is easily accessible via stairs and is supplied with 240V power. All caves are not open to public, although they are suitable for filming. The Adjoining caves are a disused phosphate mine with tunnels through hard rock and timbered shafts, which also has 240V power throughout and is a very good location.
