Timor Caves

 

The Timor limestone caves and the nearby camping areas located in the upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales, Australia. 

 

These fascinating “wild” caves are located in the picturesque Isaac’s Creek valley about 5 hours drive north of Sydney. There are no electric lights or concrete steps in the caves so bring a good torch and some strong but old shoes. Some of the caves are believed to date from before the Late Cretaceous geological period making them over 73.5 million years old!

Though the surrounding land is private property, the caves themselves are a declared public cave reserve but no permits or bookings are required to visit the caves or camp there. The owners of the land will often visit the camping areas on a weekend and collect modest camping fees.

Camping

Numerous shady, flat and grassy places to pitch a tent can be found along the creek. Turning left just after fording the creek (usually a dry crossing) takes you to some fantastic spots under large shady trees.

Further along the road, before the cattle grid, there is another left turn to larger flat areas. Watch out for black snakes which are common along the creek in this area however. These areas are suitable for large to very large groups and I have seen a dozen cars and as many family tents pitched there.

Some important notes about camping at Timor:

* There is no drinking water at the site so bring your own;

* There are no toilet facilities so bring your own;

* Please take home any rubbish you may bring with you.

Timor Caves

Australia might not have pyramids, a Colosseum or even a castle, but there's a structure of sorts that's our own piece of ancient history.
