CAVE MEN

The im­pres­sive Wombeyan Caves were dis­cov­ered in 1828 by a group of ex­plor­ers led by John Ox­ley and John Macarthur. Ox­ley, who died later that year at a youth­ful 42, was re­spon­si­ble for much of the early ex­plo­ration of the South­ern High­lands. Macarthur is known to many as the found­ing fa­ther of the Aus­tralian wool in­dus­try. In 1865, Wombeyan be­came the first area in Aus­tralia to be re­served for the pro­tec­tion of caves.
