Only 800 m off the road to a good sized area to park (even with vans). A short easy walk as others have described- at the moment there are lots of flowers along the track as well so an added bonus to the amazing caves and beautiful views. There is also a toilet just a short way along the track.

Just stunning, amazing views, a must see when in the area.



Simply amazing! Beautiful caves. The formation and colour of the stone is amazing. Beautiful views. These are also some carvings into the stone in area (marked) from the Gamilaraay (Kamilaroi) people.
