Description

Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve is located within the traditional land of the Gundungurra People, with the word Wombeyan coming from local language meaning 'grassy valley between mountains'. It's believed that Wombeyan Caves were part of an Aboriginal travel route that coincided with seasonal availability of food and the caves may have provided reliable shelter. The Dreamtime myth of Gurrangatch relates to the forming of Wombeyan and Jenolan Caves. The caves are said to have been formed during a contest between Gurangatch, a mythical being that was part fish and part reptile, and Mirragan, a legendary tiger cat.

Fig Tree Cave offers a self guided tour and costs $20 pp., see staff in the visitor centre for your map and token to open the gate into the cave. You walk up over the hill and down the other side to the entrance of the cave, and then it's a 400m walk through the cave underneath the hill. Inside the cave you have a good path with lighting and audio descriptions. This cave is open while the others are still closed. The road from the main road is a good dirt road, some minor areas of corrugations as well as areas of potholes, neither are a problem if you drive to the conditions, suitable for 2 wheel drive. We'll worth the visit.
