Driving west on our road trip over the Blue Mountains to explore central western NSW we were somewhat surprised to see a sign for the Capertee Valley Canyon indicating it as the biggest in the world. Obviously we needed to to stop, look and despite the ordinary weather, take a couple of photo’s. Upon returning home we googled “world’s largest canyon”, and found a Wikimapia entry…”Although the Grand Canyon is undoubtedly ‘grander’, Capertee Valley as a canyon is 1km wider, and also longer than America’s Grand Canyon. It is a stunning place, which has its own monolith (a butte called Pantoneys Crown…) that is up there amongst the worlds largest.” Luckily we took photo’s of both the canyon & the butte. Who knew?
