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 Mount Wilson and Wollemi National Park,
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.
Access is easy via a 500m walking track with
numerous seats to relax and absorb the bushland surrounds.
Camp fire with kindling and
20kg wood. Gas barbecue; ice box; tables and chairs. Solar powered lights for
reading, cooking etc.; candles for intimacy. Rainwater on tap for
