In 1865, Wombeyan became the first area in Australia to be reserved for the protection of caves and there are still structures dating from the early 1900's in some caves.

Today, Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve boasts some of NSW's most impressive show caves, including Figtree Cave, widely regarded as one of the state's best self-guided cave experience, and others that you can experience on a guided tour. Aside from the show caves, the reserve also has a few walks, including the Waterfall track that features scenic waterfall views and Mares Forest Creek track.

The reserve is an easy drive from Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong, so it's a great place to escape to on a weekend getaway. You can bring your caravan, tent or motor home to camp out overnight or you can book into one of the cabins or the cosy Post Office Cottage.
