Name:
Koan Cave
Description:

Is a significant cave being 25m across the mouth, 20m high and 20m deep. Located on the eastern cliff line above Carne Creek, 1.5km north west of Deanes Siding. Access via Koan Pass or The Gurgler. This overhang features an irregular band of creamy white flowering Epacris crassifolia up to 50cm wide around much of the back wall. When a name was suggested for this cave it was unanimous by the bushwalking group to celebrate with the leader on the day, Yuri Bolotin, whose grandson, Koan Bolotin was born 48 hours previously on the 1st of November 2014. This cave is an inspirational and contemplative place, so Koan is absolutely perfect.
