Thunderbolt's Cave, named for Captain Thunderbolt - ?Frederick Wordsworth Ward (1835–1870), is off the New England Highway, not far from the village of Black Mountain near the major towns of Armidale and Guyra in northern New South Wales.
We am presuming Thunderbolt used the cave in 1867 and 1868 the years when he conducted many robberies in the Tamworth and New England districts, some with Thomas Mason.
If you are visiting the cave don't forget to call in at McCrossin’s Mill Museum at Uralla, which houses the definitive collection of artifacts connected with the legendary bushranger, Captain Thunderbolt.
