Sydney Caving, Best Cave Tours & Experiences, NSW
The Blue Mountains are also home to the Wind Cave; a unique structure whose formation was caused by wind erosion, with the walls featuring small formations that give a honeycomb-like appearance. The cave is also tall, and this allows stunning views of the nearby Grose Valley.
Take your caving adventure to another level when you explore the Red Hands Cave in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park. The incredible thing about these caves is that they are home to important historical artworks. Look out for the wall handprints believed to have been left behind by traditional communities that lived in the region. These caves are also near the 4.5-kilometre Aboriginal Heritage Walk, where visitors can learn more about art and engravings.
Another must-visit cave is the Palona Cave located in the Royal National Park. The cave, made from limestone, features intricate formations that add an exotic touch to the cave’s interiors. The nearby waterfall is the perfect place to take a refreshing dip to wind up the caving adventure.
Take a trip out of town to visit the Fig Tree Cave, which is part of the Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve. This is a chance to marvel at the majestic limestone formations and appreciate all of nature’s diversity when you take a self-guided tour. Best of all, you can spend the night too as camping, cabin and private accommodation options are available.
