Amazing view that suits family outstanding, hiking and picnic BBQ and toilet facilities in the picnic area. You can spot some wildlife around in the morning. Good hiking path that requires moderate walkers

An interesting spot with a history worth learning. Beautiful views of surrounding districts. Caves just a short walk to explore with other walking tracks to explore as well. Nice clean picnic and camping areas lots of kangaroos to sit watch

Amazing views! We went on a picture perfect day. Enjoyed a picnic, some bush walking, great tracks and the views after climbing the paths to the rocks were amazing! Brought back childhood memories of visits to these caves many years ago. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited Melville caves and were very suprised by the view and the rock formations. A great spot for a picnic or just a fun afternoon with the family.

We visited with our dog who was allowed in the park on a lead. The boys had great fun climbing over the giant boulders and the views from the top were fantastic. It was worth the walk from the bottom car park, but if the...More

The park was a great place to stop and picnic with plenty of walks for the more adventurous. The caves were great and the views were spectacular giving us a sense of history and how lonely the place would have been in the distant past....More
