Sandstone Caves

Turn off  the Newell Highway to the east on Yaminbah Track (not well signed) approximately 35km north of Coonabarabran or 8km south of No 1 Break Road.

The Sandstone Caves, situated in Pilliga Nature Reserve, are a special place for the Gamilaraay people (also known as Gomeroi or Kamilaroi people). Please respect the site and the wishes of the Aboriginal community. All plants animals and rock features in the Pilliga Nature Reserve are protected.

A 1.7km medium-grade walk begins at the car park and takes you through a picturesque part of the forest to the impressive sandstone hills. The numerous caves along the walk vary in size and colour and some contain Aboriginal rock engravings.

Take a self-guided walk or book a guided tour at Pilliga Forest Discovery Centre in Baradine.
