Petries gully is a pleasant stroll up an old logging track in the Wolgan Valley, just down stream of Newnes. We were lucky enough to catch it after a wet spell so the cascades were in full display.
Getting there: From the main camp ground at the end of the road follow the trail down stream staying on the left (North) side of the Wolgan river.
You’ll pass the ruins of the old managers residence, which is worth a look around.
After about a kilometer you will come to a Y intersection at the bottom of a hill. The righthand trail is signposted “Pipeline Trail” go left instead and this will take you up Petries gully.
It’s fairly easy going and straight forward to begin. As you get higher the trail crosses the stream a few times and can be hard to follow as it’s overgrown and washed out the higher you go..
Return: Return the way you came.
