The shady walking track starts near Kui Kiosk and follows the banks of the usually dry Wombeyan Creek. Pack some sandwiches and have lunch at Wombeyan picnic area, then take your camera along to capture the awe-inspiring scenery at the end of the track.
Victoria Arch is one of the largest chambers at Wombeyan Caves. It contains a striking array of colours created by bacteria that grows on the walls and roof. Large stromatolites – layered rock mounds formed by bacteria – can also be observed on the floor of this chamber. They resemble the tail of a crayfish and are commonly referred to as ‘cray backs’.
There are no steps along Victoria Arch walking track until you reach the arch, so it’s an excellent way for everyone to enjoy the natural beauty of Wombeyan Caves.
