We visited the caves on a very hot summer's day and found a lovely cool spot to set up a picnic for the day. We enjoyed swimming in the water hole (although the leeches freaked out a few of our party) and playing cricket in the shade. There is a shop/kiosk that sells ice blocks - but bring everything else... More

We decided to do the walk which sets off from the caves information centre. It is a good 6-7 km round trip which takes around 3 hours. You could do the walk in 2-2 1/2 hours but it would mean not stoping to enjoy the the scenery. Well worth it even though the river was barely flowing and the waterfall... More

Stayed in one of the cabins (July) as passing through. Was very cold, so be prepared with warm clothing. Grounds, BBQ, caves well looked after, great camp kitchen.

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
