Set in a peaceful valley, Abercrombie Karst Conservation Reserve is a spectacular place to visit and a unique opportunity to experience the hidden depths of NSW. Abercrombie Caves boasts the largest natural arch in the southern hemisphere, as well as a number of other grand, richly decorated caves. Take the kids on a cave tour and go on a magical underground journey.

With so much to do and see, why not stay overnight? Enjoy a night by the campfire at Ambercrombie Caves campground, or cosy cabins and open fireplaces at Arch Cottage or Grove Creek ensuite cabins.

Make your way along Mount Gray walking track to see the historical relics of an old gold-mining community from the 1880s. Pack a picnic, walk to the magnificent Grove Creek Falls and take in the dramatic views – this is a great place to catch a memorable photograph. Try your luck trout fishing in the creek or enjoy a refreshing swim surrounded by bush.
