From the car park by the roadside the walk to the bone caves passes a resurgence where water from underground comes to the surfcace. In summer months, during dry spells, the river bed is dry around here but looks very strange as water comes out...More

Path is excellent and well maintained. Still need good shoes. Scenery is beautiful and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere very quickly. From 7 to 50 no problems.

I stumbled over this walk while researching things to do on our trip to the area. There is a car park which could probably hold 12 to 15 cars, which will be adequate most of the time. The walk takes about two hours, and includes...More

Amazing Lord-of-the-Rings-sequel walk through a jaw-droppingly scenic valley with mountains either side. Caves themselves were very interesting. On very steep slopes so not for anyone with vertigo! Awesome views. The real shame was the amount of used toilet paper strewn inside the caves. It is...More

We took our 5 year old daughter on this hike on a rainy (but warm) day. She as well as us really enjoyed it. Great views and a lovely setting make for a good walk!

Nice gentle walk up a valley. Visited with young children and on a nice day it was great to see them forging ahead - it's about a 4km round trip - we managed it with two young boys (6&4). The route up is a little...More

The Bone Caves hiking trail is a perfect way to spend a couple of hours getting out of the car after travelling for 2 days. The hike has spectacular views and has both easy and a bit more challenging sections to please every hiker.

The caves are at 350 meters and the walk starts from 138m, so the total ascent is only 212 meters. However the last section is a litle steep, but with a good path. Quite suitable for a family walk.
