The cave itself isn't that exciting, but the views are good and it is worth the walk up there. The landscape you walk through is also interesting. There are a lot of steps, so if you have dicey knees, probably not great, but it isn't...More

The Weddin Mountains National Park also houses Seaton's Farm, a Depression era corrugated iron home which is not to be missed. It's not well signposted but worth the search to see how dirt-poor people worked back-breakingly hard, survived and made do in that terrible time....More

The reserve is part of the Weddin Mountain National Park and so has very good facilities for the outdoor experience. Great information about the history of the area. While you are there, make sure that you visit Seaton's Farm
