Driving the curvy Wombeyan Caves Road in the Southern Highlands

Wombeyan Caves Road is the name of a very demanding drive located in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia.

Wombeyan Caves Road

The road is mostly unpaved but navigable by passenger vehicles in good weather. However, some sections are very rough (in parts the road conditions deteriorate substantially) and a 4WD vehicle is recommended. The road is not easy, with countless blind turns, twists and sharp hairpin turns. Subject to landslides damage.

The road is 84 km (52.19 miles) long, running west-east from Taralga to Bowral. It is very narrow in parts and steep, topping out at 1.012m (3,320ft) above the sea level. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 2.5 and 3 hours. The drive offers stunning views and a visit to Wombeyan caves site is well worth the trip.
