Hatter’s Hideout transects a deep mountain gorge, with lush cool temperate rainforest to natural bonsai in wind swept heath; to woodland with panoramic views across the World Heritage Area and home of the prehistoric wollemi pine. Set amidst towering escarpments, the Hat Cave is a huge sandstone cathedral, sculpted by nature to provide an ideal bushland retreat for modern cave dwellers (troglodytes).
The natural acoustics are a musicians dream. It has been carefully developed using minimal impact construction and facilities to ensure the environment remains as pristine as possible for future generations to enjoy. The 25 metre high arched opening faces north west with wind and weather protection by a grove of coachwood trees and 30 metre tall carved rock columns known locally as “pagodas”, a predominant feature in the primitive landscape. Access is easy via a 500m walking track with numerous seats to relax and absorb the bushland surrounds.
Facilities include :
Camp fire with 20kg wood.
Tables and chairs
Solar powered lights for reading, cooking etc.
Candles for intimacy.
Rainwater on tap for cooking and washing up.
Kitchen sink, utensils and basic cooking condiments.
