    Best times to visit

    There are lots of great things waiting for you in Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve. Here are some of the highlights.

    Spring

    While the caves can be visited all year round, a trip to Wombeyan in spring is well timed to catch wildflowers in full bloom.

    Summer

    A great time for a weekend camping trip - pitch your tent, enjoy breakfast cooked on the barbecue and beat the heat with a dip in a natural swimming hole.

    Take advantage of the cooler weather and book a weekend getaway at the historic Post Office Cottage. The wood heater will keep you warm all night.
