Camp cave near Folly Point Budawangs

Postby Huntsman247 » Mon 05 Nov, 2018 6:35 pm

I'm wondering about the camp cave in the image attached. How much shelter does it provide? How many people can it fit? And is water easily accessible nearby or do you need to walk further towards the campsite on Holland's creek?

Any info would be great.

Hi Huntsman247,
This cave is part of the Budawangs Wilderness Area so party limit 8.
It is big enough for 8 people to sleep in.
It would provide good shelter unless you had a lot of rain driven in from the east.
Water in creek below the cave.
We need to take good care of this area because it's special! :)

Ahh good to know. Thanks for the info. Don't worry I'm in the care about the environment camp. It is truly a special part of the world. I generally don't go bigger than 6 in areas like that.
Some friends were down and the only days they had to go hiking was forecasted rain... So I was hoping for a dry place for the night. Due to one in the group developing severe blisters in the wet we didn't quite make it there anyways. But hoping to do Hollands gorge soon so might stay there the night then.

Haven't been into Hollands Gorge yet, but I hear it's beautiful! :)
