Description

Enjoy your lunch in the company of the birds at Salt Caves picnic area in Timmallallie National Park. It's a scenic spot to pause for a picnic or barbecue on your exploration of Pilliga Forest. Work off your lunch with a hike up the escarpment to the Pilliga Forest lookout tower where you'll be treated to breathtaking views across the vast Pilliga Forest. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Warrumbungles to the south-east, and Mount Kaputar Park in the north-east. For a shorter stroll, take the 1km walk to Salt Caves Dam, a popular watering hole for the native wildlife and a great spot for birdwatching. The cave itself is an important Aboriginal site and is an excellent example of shelters used by the traditional Gamilaroi people. Before you head out to the Salt Caves, get the low down on where to go at the award-winning Pilliga Forest Discovery Centre, in Baradine. Pets and domestic animals (other than certified assistance animals) are not permitted.

Great place to look at- the caves were interesting. The climb to the top of the tower is worth it, even my twin 4 year olds did it with ease. The climb up the stairs looks so much harder than it is. Such a wonderful 360 degree view. Even saw a fire in the distance, which is what the tower was made for. Road was good, if you are not in a rush, it was a great place to stop with the kiddies.
