Escarpments surround you as you have exclusive use of this bushland setting. Hat Cave is a sandstone cathedral, eroded and shaped into a wondrous idealic setting. An ideal bushland retreat with minimal impact on the environment. Hat Cave is a musician's delight as the natural acoustics here are truly out of this world.

The way Monkey Creek and Hatters Cave has been created is special. Easy access walking track only 500 meters or 10 minute walk, with seats installed, to bring some comforts from home, while experiencing this wondrous bushland setting. The cave's arch is 25 meters high and is protected by its north west position surrounded by coach-wood trees. The 30 metre carved rock columns, are one of the unique features of the Blue Mts. The pagodas have a small knob or beehive look on top of the rocks. A Bush Walk and Talk to the Cave to keep you well informed of what you are about to experience.
