Bushrangers Cave was once used by the notorious Ribbon Gang, made up of escaped convicts and led by young English convict-servant Ralph Entwistle. The cave's remote location and narrow passages meant it was an ideal place for the gang to hide out. On this tour you'll also visit King Solomon’s Temple chamber, crossing a suspension bridge to reach it.

Entry to Bushrangers Cave is by guided tour only. It's a good idea to wear sturdy shoes and bring a camera and a jumper (the temperature is cooler inside the cave). Bring a packed lunch if you're planning a day at Abercrombie Caves. There is no mobile phone reception in this park.
