Ilford: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Kandos Museum


In 1919, the first manager of Kandos Cement envisioned a proud future for modern Kandos leaving a legacy of his beloved Spanish Mission-styled church. The church is now Kandos Museum, telling the story of that thriving 20th Century town that made the cement that made Sydney. The general opinion is that he would have approved - come and see.

Capertee Valley


Surrounded by the wonders of World Heritage listed wilderness, the Capertee Valley is the world's second largest canyon. Sandstone cliffs dominate the escarpment, drawing down into a deep chasm carved into the environment over millions of years. With tranquil vistas and serene mountain landscapes the Capertee Valley is abundant in flora and fauna, providing the perfect opportunity to encounter nature in a natural environment. Under the sandstone layer stretches an enormous layer of coal and oil shale.

Rising majestically out of the valley floor is a monolith in size and spectacle. The impressive peak, Pantoney's Crown, beckons the keen walker to climb its summit. From the top is a 360 degree panorama of the dramatic and breathtaking valley.
