These caves demonstrate the power of nature as a seemingly solid rock erodes over time, and also amazing patterns and colours revealed within the sandstone. Superb art, by Nature.

A bit off beaten track. Worth taking a look. Site is significant to our indigenous population. Walk is easy and takes approx 1hr.

Definitely worth a visit. A short manageable bushwalk which highlights a number of Piligra Sandstone caves.
