Family Camp 2015 @ Wombeyan Caves

DATES

Tuesday 29th December 2015 to Friday 1st January 2016

MAP & DIRECTIONS

The map below shows directions to the camp site from the church house. The red pin is pretty much the exact spot we are hoping to secure when we arrive. Otherwise we’ll try find a nice open spot that has its own fire pit.

Make sure you take the road as shown in the map below. Sometimes Google Maps will send you through the mountains and whilst it seems like a “shortcut”, trust me, it is not the road you want to take. It is a very off-road type of track to drive along and I’m still shocked at how our Corolla (with all our junk strapped on top of it) made it all the way…
