Availability of water in upper Tiwilla Ck

Planning a walk to 100 man cave. Anyone visited there recently? Was water available?
Thanks in advance for any info you may have.

Most unlikely to be any surface water in the creek bed near the Kowmung. Quite possible that there may be some several km up. It's a gamble.

I haven't been there since April, but whenever it has been dry I have found water by dropping down to TiWilla Creek (about 10 minutes) and turning left (upstream), then within 50 metres. One time I was doing a reccie prior to leading a group out there. I carried seven litres of water for the weekend just in case, but didn't need it.
