A Glance at the National Park Gardens of Stone National Park is located in New South Wales, Australia at a distance of 125 km to the north west of Sydney. This national park is also a significant part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Site. The park is partly within the Sydney Basin region and the catchment region of Hawkesbury Nepean River. It consists of numerous sandstone pagoda forms of rock with low woodlands, heathlands, Blue Mountains sandstone forests and shrublands. Broken cliff lines which are present around the Capertee Valley extend into the bordering Wollemi National Park, close to Newnes. Step slopes present below the cliffs have eucalypt forests where one can come across the rare species. In the box woodlands and ironbark located near to the Capertee, steep sided gullies have been incised by the major creeks which expose limestone outcrops that happen to be 400 million year old. Landscape of the Park The park is present within the geological region of Sydney Basin located in the Blue Mountains Plateau and is mainly comprised of limestone, alluvial deposits and sandstone. The park is also highly known for its pagoda rock formations made by the erosion of outcrops of sandstone. Flora There is a rich variety of vegetation because of the good flow of water and the number of different landforms. In the Point Cameron
