Hermit’s Cave & Lookout

The cave was once the home of Valerio Ricetti, a miner from Broken Hill who lived the life of a hermit in his cave on Scenic Hill for many years. A keen gardener, Valerio transformed the rocky escarpment and created dry-stone-walls, paths and stone steps creating access to areas that he called, the Garden, the Chapel and the Main Cave. The walls of the Main Cave feature paintings of small daisies, created by Ricetti. The living areas and stone walls are marked on the storyboard and form part of a signed heritage trail/walk.

Wear sturdy walking shoes as the paths are uneven.
