Caves in Berowra - video

Updated: Oct 12, 2022

It was a hot Summer’s day with temperatures over 35 degrees Celsius.

Another afternoon out on one of my regular solo walking tours of Sydney’s wilderness. I’m fortunate to live on the edge of the Berowra Valley National Park, so I’m often exploring the valleys of this area in my spare time.

Normally I’ll walk down near the river, looking for Aboriginal carvings. This afternoon though, was a hike along the cooler tops of the ridges.

These ancient caves were once used by the original inhabitants of the area. If you’re lucky, evidence of this can be seen by by Aboriginal carvings, charcoal illustrations, or shell middens strewn about the cave floor.

Although I didn’t see any of these items in these caves, I always get the feeling that I’ve walked past some amazing discoveries.

Maybe some remnants of past inhabitants are never meant to be found.
