There are some caves near here as well as a drum at the intersection of a track heading north to the old abandoned Hunt Oil drilling camp.
It is 24 dead straight kilometres from the Hunt Oil Road – Tjirrkarli Road intersection to reach the low range of hills that mark the centre of the first of the old Hunt oil drilling camp. There are a confusion of old tracks here. On arrival at the base of the hills, there is an old oil drum marking a branch to the left. We continued straight on past this over the hill as if heading on a northerly track to the old drilling campsite 10 km distant. Once on the crest of the hill you can see the exposed red bluffs running off to the west. A hundred metres further on is a track to the left which takes you the short distance into the caves (26 09 16.402 S, 125 09 33.098).

The northern side of this low range of hills has been worn into a series of worn red bluffs which are punctuated with caves of varying sizes. They are a great haven for wildlife as was evident by the roo poo and tracks on the cave floors. I think the lack of available water in the area may have made the area not desirable as a place of habitation for the aboriginal peoples as there was no clear evidence of their presence from times past
