Great spot to spend the day. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenery. Caves are great fun to explore - but bring a torch for some parts! Great walking tracks. Basic toilet facilities in the parking area.

If you like a little bit of walking and a little bit of adventure, strap your shoes on, grab a torch and take the short drive from Orange to visit these caves. It's a fun little adventure.

I went with my (70 year old) Mum, we both found the track very easy to walk on. The bushland leading up to the cave was very picturesque. The rock arch was massive and full of character, there's also a lovely little stream underneath. The...More
