THUNDERBOLTS CAVE

How fun is it to actually follow a rough bush track and at the end of it end up at a real Bush Rangers Cave. Now I can tell you if you have a 11y.o boy in the car it's like me being let loose at Willy Wonkers Factory(Self-confessed chocoholic). Lane was absolutely delighted when we pulled off the highway & told him we were heading to Captain Thunderbolts hideout.Lane had studied the history of Australian Bush Rangers at school only a few months previous.


Captain Thunderbolt was a bushranger around the New England District of N.S.W from 1864-1870. He was shot dead in 1870 by a policeman after trying to steal yet another racehorse.



This the front entrance to the cave
This is the hole in the top of the cave
Every good bush ranger knows there must be more than one entrance/exit point

I have visited Power's Lookout a few times, I love it there. Power was a bushranger.

Wow, sounds thrilling, though I have to admit that caves really scare me!

That sounds like an adventure my boys would love, especially with history tied to it!
