Wondabyne to Pindar Cave is a 13.6km, grade 3 return hike located in the Brisbane Water National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 5.5hrs to complete.

Summary

The walk will begin with a nice climb from Wondabyne Station. Then it’s via fire trail and track to Pindar Cave. Pindar Cave is a geological formation which appears as a massive concave of overhanging sandstone rock. Although it is named as a cave, the whole formation is an overhang. It is large enough for sixty walkers to camp overnight under its shelter away from wet weather.

The wildflowers in this area during spring are amazing. The Sydney rock orchids (Dendrobium speciosum) should be in full bloom above the cave.

Getting There

The only access is by train.

Tips

  • Make sure you are in the last train carriage as the platform length is only the length of that carriage
