Abercrombie Caves are located about 65 kms south of Bathurst via the delightful little town of Trunkey. Would be a good little day trip for those interested in seeing the caves. We visited in December 2016 and as we had explored caves previously, primarily came for the camping and bushwalking. The camp grounds are average: most sites front the river... More

Took my American friend to the caves at the end of September. We visited in the middle of the deluge that most of NSW has been experiencing for some time now. Due to the abundance of rain, the normal walking path was closed off and we were directed over the suspended bridge. We visited a couple of days after we... More

Abercrombie Caves are situated 70 km south of Bathurst on the road to Goulburn. It is well worth the drive to get to Trunkey Creek as there is more than just the caves here. This is an area of beautiful unspoiled countryside. There are bushwalks, the creek, picnic tables, and a suspension bridge. When you walk along the bush trails... More

We stayed overnight in the cabins down at Abercrombie Caves to celebrate my partners birthday. The grounds are lovely to walk around, with lots of birds, wombats and kangaroos. The guys did the Mount Grey walk, but we didn't do the caves as they weren't suitable for my partner's parents to walk through. I would love the NSW Government to... More

These caves are well worth a visit. A lot cheaper than going to Jenolan Caves and they have campsites and cottages to rent. It is a very peaceful area and wildlife abound. Take a picnic lunch, there are no food outlets.

Worth the detour to experience these beautiful limestone caves. Right now is the time to do it! The caves are strategically lit and you self-tour, which gives you plenty of time to climb through the many cave spaces and explore at your own pace. The river is up and is rushing through the caves, for the first time in ages.... More

Much less crowded compared to the likes of Jenolan. A very nice and tranquil experience as my wife and I walked through the cave self guided. Although not as varied as Jenloan Caves, still a fascinating experience.

We took our caravan down a very steep and windy road – I would not want to take a long van down. We did not know about this attraction, but were very pleased that we made the descent.

Place is nice for camping for 1 or 2 days. Creek is not as mentioned in nsw park site as there was no water at all during this easter - you might be disappointed if you are looking for a water for kids to play around. No water in nearby falls but just a rock. Please check before you plan... More
