Something to stop & visit the locations that this infamous outlaw hid out as he moved about the country. This spot is barely off the beaten track, a crawl in space with a hole in the ceiling for his fire smoke to exit, space for about 8 people to sit inside, no doubt it was better then being out in the wet & cold.

Huge boulders and a path leading to the hideout. Just to see the landscape without the hideout and story is worthwhile paying this place a visit. We enjoyed this very much.

Image a time when there were no cars. People rode horseback, or in carriages, and the roads were not safe. Highwaymen stopped travellers and relieved them of their goods and wealth, before disappearing into the bush, where they could hide in caves and unknown places, impossible to find. This is one of those places, and when you go here, you will see why he was able to avoid being found. Find this cave and then climb up the hill behind it, through the exit at the back of the cave, for some magnificent views.

We loved this spot. A little walk in from the road you’ll find the most fabulous hiding spot of Captain Thunderbolt. You can walk through the rock openings and really imagine Thunderbolt hiding out here. Bookending this with our trip to Uralla completes the tale. Well worth a stop and a stroll.

Whilst visiting the numerous National Parks in the area, this quick stop is well worth the effort to stop at. This is an opportunity to educate the young ones of recent Australian history and our bushranging infamy. Climb in amongst the rocks and set your imagination loose of times-gone-by. A short well-maintained path will get you to the hideout.
