Glen Davis Ruins

Agri, Mining and Industry

The Glen Davis Shale Oil Works, located in the Capertee Valley, was one of the largest employers in the area. Producing gasoline, the operation was an important strategic resource during the war era. In its heyday about 2,500 people lived in the township. Vertical sandstone cliffs stand guard over the crumbling vegetation covered structures lending a surreal impression.

Today, the ruins of this once thriving industry can be toured every Saturday at 2pm.
