Cavan: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Hume Park - for Day Visitors


Hume Park is located on the backwaters of Lake Burrinjuck and was established in 1927. It was developed to commemorate the epic crossing of the flooded Murrumbidgee River by the Hume and Hovell expedition in October 1824. Brief details of this event are on a stone cairn near the boat ramp.

Easily accessible, tree shaded, relaxing and quiet, it is ideal for day visitors and a water skier's haven with plenty of room to move around. Please phone the operator for the current water levels. If you wish to stay a little longer there are Powered and unpowered sites, and cabins are also available.

The facilities include a kiosk, public amenities, picnic area and swimming area, barbecue, fishing (licences available at the kiosk), launching ramp, fuel, indoor amusement centre, water ski equipment and accessories.

Bring the whole family along for a peaceful escape.

Careys Cave


The gem of Wee Jasper.

Travelling to Wee Jasper is a journey through one of the most diverse geological landscapes in Australia. The road passes through a range of volcanic and sedimentary rocks with a mix of broad acre and grazing rural properties. After crossing the historic bridge over the Goodradigbee River you drive through the village to the school at the end of the road and turn right, the sealed road will take you six kilometres out to Careys Cave.

Described as one of the most beautiful and fascinating tour cave systems in Australia, Careys Caves offers opportunities not found on conventional cave tours. There are a total of seven beautiful chambers of Crystal formations. There are 30 steps down into Careys Cave. After this, most of the pathways are fairly level. The floors of the chambers are mostly flat and you have the opportunity to explore different options.

Wee Jasper Bridge over Goodradigbee River


Completed in 1896, the Wee Jasper Bridge is an early example of an Allan type timber truss road bridge. Allan trusses were third in the five stage design evolution of NSW timber truss bridges, and were a major improvement over the McDonald trusses which preceded them.

The Wee Jasper bridge is a representative example of Allan timber truss road bridges, and is assessed as being State significant, primarily on the basis of its technical and historical significance.

Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Wee Jasper Bridge over Goodradigbee River.
