Explore this spectacular limestone gorge and Cooleman Cave within Kosciuszko National Park. As you walk along the usually dry Cave Creek, keep your eye out for ancient fossilised shells of brachipods. The walk is closed during winter and only open between the October and June long weekends. The walk can flood so always check the weather forecast. Bring a torch to help you explore the entrance to the cave. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wiradjuri people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
