Party - Bob, Dave

We first visited Frank Walford's Cave. It is located near Mt Carne - on the cliffs above Arethusa Canyon. Neither of us had visited the cave before and it sounded an interesting place. Frank Walford was a former Mayor of the Blue Mountains and a novellist as well as an expert bushman. he used the cave as a private retreat.

Above - the ladder to the larder looked a little unsafe - so we didn't climb up to it.

Above - a mouldy old magazine (someone had placed this and more in a plastic bag - which was not a good idea)

Above - We speculated that these structures in the cave may have been used to collect and store water
