You'll begin with a walk over the surface limestone, where you'll enjoy impressive views of the rock formations and karst landscape. You might glimpse some local wildlife, such as wallabies, lizards, scrub wrens and lyre birds. This is a different kind of cave tour – you won't forget Archway Cave's huge entrances, massive formations, colourful twilight zones and picturesque views. It even has a gold miners dance platform, built in 1880.

It's a good idea to wear sturdy shoes and bring a camera. Bring a packed lunch if you're planning a day at Abercrombie Caves. There is no mobile phone reception in this park.
