Looking for adventure?
Plunkett Conservation Park offers tranquil Eucalypt bushland and vast sandstone outcrops, including a small cave!

Trail through Plunkett Conservation Park

Situated between Yarrabilba and Cedar Creek, this site is best accessed near the Chardon Bridge Road entrance. There is a fair bit of uphill walking but it is spaced out by plateaus and downhill slopes.

There are stunning rock formations along the highest point of the walk, with equally impressive views. Unfortunately, signage is very limited within the park. Despite this, the locally renown cave can easily be located by following the clear instructions supplied by Aussie Bush Walking.

Accessing the cave requires off-track exploration and scrambling over large rocks. This particular section may be too physically strenuous or overwhelming for some younger children. There are two entrances to the cave, the safest being from the side. The cave is rather small but the overall experience is rather ethereal.

A reasonable level of fitness is required. I recently visited with two primary-school aged children. One found the experience a little daunting, however, both children were able to complete the track.

Bicycles, horses and dogs (on leash) are permitted within Plunkett Conservation Park.
