Abercrombie Caves

Just 70 kilometres South-East of Bathurst, the caves at Abercrombie nestle deep in wonderful Australian bushland. There are more than 50 caves in the reserve; the caves are surrounded by native bush on a 1400 hectare Nature Reserve. The entrance to the Abercrombie Caves is through the majestic Grand Arch. Solid masses of marble decorate the walls of the caves highlighted by the soft natural light entering from each end. There are swimming holes in the creek as well as a public fossicking area within the camping area. At the southern end of the Abercrombie Caves Nature Reserve are the Grove Creek Falls, which tumble spectacularly some 70 metres. An all weather track leads to the viewing platform.

Abercrombie Caves


The entrance to the Abercrombie Caves is through the majestic Archway. Solid masses of marble decorate the walls of the caves highlighted by the soft natural light entering from each end.

More than a century ago goldminers built a platform for dances in one of the main galleries. Today the historic dance floor is used as a stage for underground concerts, weddings and Christmas carols.

The bushrangers cave was once the hideout for the Ribbon Gang, led by the ill-fated Ralph Entwistle, who began life on the run after being caught swimming nude in the Macquarie River at Bathurst.

Book Keepers Cottage


Tuena is renowned for the wattle and daub hut known as the Book Keepers Cottage. This is the best example of the numerous wattle and daub buildings in the district. Take a step back in time and take a look around the cottage as it holds history still. The Book Keepers Cottage was built in 1861 and was used as a place to tally up gold before being conveyed to its destination by coach and armed escorts.
