Hike Summary

This circuit hike explores the tall, cool sugar gum forest above Kelly Hill Caves. Watch out for the many craters in the landscape that drain into the caves below. The trail passes the original cave entrance.

About the region

The majority of the park and much of its infrastructure was burnt in the January 2020 bushfire, but the toilets survived! We’re working hard to rebuild and reimagine the park.

In the meantime, the good news is that green shoots are emerging from vegetation in nearby Flinders Chase National Park and Ravine des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area and there are native animal sightings like goannas, eagles, kangaroos and KI echidnas.
