Dr Darks Cave (7 Jun 2015)

Rusty, Ryan, Steph, Sarah and I headed to Dr Darks Cave for a shortish walk. We decided on this one as it had a bit of history around it and due to the 50km/h+ winds.

It is believed that in 1937 Dr. Dark’s discovered this cave which is located in the Fortress Ridge area of the Mt. Hay. It was used as a family home for a couple of weeks at a time. The main room comes complete with a shower (waterfall) and his rusty metal cooking items still remain in place (see photos below). Near the fire ring there is a square rusty metal box which contains a visitors book.

A short walk past the waterfall leads to you some fantastic views!

Not exactly a bushwalk but Sarah and I had a good half day exploring Cockatoo Island while the Biennale of Sydney was on. It is full of history and a fantastic photography location. DSC_4124
