Cave Garden/Thugi

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Situated in the centre of the city, the Cave Garden/Thugi features a sinkhole that was the original source of water for the early settlers. Its beauty and significance can be appreciated from the viewing platforms which hang dramatically over the sinkhole. A bonus in wet weather is the spectacular waterfall.

Every evening a spectacular Evening Light Show tells our Aboriginal Dreamtime stories. Best viewed down in the cave, times vary due to season and daylight savings.

Beautiful roses are a stunning feature of the famous Cave Garden/Thugi, a state heritage area. With its historic garden flowing deep into the sinkhole, this area is a great meeting place for locals.
