Nice short walk imagining what it would have been like to hide out here in the caves.

This was a really fun walk, exploring the lookout and caves. We had our almost 5 year old granddaughter with us, and it was a really great place to take her. So much fun. Well worth doing this one if you're in the area.

The clamber up the rock at the end is a bit precarious, but the outlook is worth it.

What an incredible place to explore! We took our 7 and 9 year olds and had an amazing time clambering over and around and underneath the rocks.
Short little walk up to the lookout (an enormous large boulder, with steps, hand rail and fence for safety), with amazing views, and then we spent ages just exploring. No particular track to follow, but it's not difficult to find your way back to the carpark.
We spotted signs of koalas in the form of droppings, but unfortunately did not actually see any of them (probably making too much noise..).
Well worth a visit!
