A number of quite impressive canyons are to be found on the plateau north of Newnes and on Island Mountain to the south of Newnes.

Amongst the best of these include Newnes Canyon (also known as Starlight Canyon) which features a long section (300m) of dark tunnel (The Amazing Wallaby Tunnel) and the nearby Devil's Pinch and Pipeline Canyons.
