  • These caves demonstrate the power of nature as a seemingly solid rock erodes over time, and also amazing patterns and colours revealed within the sandstone. Superb art, by Nature.  more »

  • Well worth the visit. Easy 1.7km return walk. Very interesting cave formations. Toilet facilities. Needs better promotion and road signage to attract more visitors.
  • Beautiful sandstone walls and surrounding environment. The walk is an easy grade that the kids and partners father enjoyed thoroughly. Highly recommend if in the area and interested.
  • The Sandstone Caves is just north of Coonabarabran, on the Newell Highway. Unfortunately these Caves are not signposted from the Highway but are situated between Cusack Creek and Billy Creek on a dirt road signposted as Yaminbah Trail. Only a short drive off the highway and a short easy walk to loop around a sandstone hill with a number of Caves historically used by local aboriginals. It is a special peaceful place with colourful rock formations and great vistas of the surrounding district.
  • Went here a few years ago and absolutely loved it. There was no signage off the highway though so had to track kms from the info centre. Great little hidden gem.
  • Above flashback to the ancient centuries that the Australian aboriginals made a caves as shelter. There are also some fussils.
