This plateau lies north of Lithgow, west of the pine forests and south of the wide section of the Wolgan Valley. It is basically to the west of the Glow Worm Tunnel Road. Part of this area lies in Gardens of Stone National Park.
Many of the canyons in this area are dry and can be visited during
winter. One example is "The Dry Canyon" near the Glow Worm Tunnel
Road. It is very easy to access and equally easy to visit. It has two
sections of constriction - the lower one is quite dark. Some other
impressive canyons are nearby. Further west on the main part of the
plateau - near Birds Rock are to be found some quite remarkable
