Beelbangera: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Hermits Caves and Lookout

Hermits Cave is situated to the left and down a path below the former Sir Dudley de Chair's Lookout - now named the Hermits Cave Lookout.

The cave was once the home of Valerio Riccetti, a miner from Broken Hill. After being jilted, he left Broken Hill and lived the life of a hermit in his cave on Scenic Hill.

During World War II, he was interned and after his release he returned to the cave. He became very ill and sought refuge from one of the local doctors. In return for treatment he tended the doctor's garden.

The hermit again became very ill and the citizens of Griffith collected money and sent him back to his home country in Italy where three months later he died.

Call into the Griffith Visitors Information Centre for a copy of the Hermit's story and Heritage Trail brochure.
