Flinders Peak is a prominent landmark to the south of Ipswich.

The cave is open, but please be aware access is sensitive and if we aren't careful we could lose the privilege again. Please respect the local roads and residents, keep gates closed at all times and do not leave any gear or rubbish in the cave.

Access via Mt Elliott Rd which is off Undulla Rd. Stay on Mt Elliott Rd til you come to a gate. Go through and close it behind you. You eventually come to 2 gates. The right one is clearly someone's house. Take the left gate, drive to the end (Bumpy dirt road) and park somewhere without blocking the Gate or the road. Follow the fire trail for 5 mins, to an intersection with a yellow SFT marker. Turn left (uphill). Soon you arrive at another yellow SFT marker. Left again onto the faint trail. Follow through the trees to a clearing and Head left immediately. You should be able to follow this now well developed trail all the way to the crag without much trouble. At the small gear cave, scramble up the rock just left where the log leans agàinst the wall.
