Is located 500m north of the Wolgan River between the Pipeline Track and Petries Gully, Newnes. This area morphs from being a cliff surrounded basin to a graduated valley where the cliffs and floor are a continuum. Structurally, The Crater is a hanging valley that enjoys locally higher rainfall and protection from desiccating winds. It is not volcanic in origin and does not even have clay soil. The Tree Ferns areCyathea australis, a species that is more drought tolerant than Dicksonia antarctica. Other common species are Coachwood and Sassafras. Named by Thomas Ebersoll, owner of the Old Newnes Hotel, 2005.
