Description

This area is notable for the tower with 2 large scoops, one atop another and some recently added bolted on wooden rungs to get into the first "cave". Penthouse is to the left and Red Light Special to the right.

Access issues inherited from West Gosford

Drive along Manns Rd, turn L into Carnarvon, and L into Tathra. Park on road at top gate at 'House of Praise', an evangelical church that looks like a factory (large SOM black sign on building). Walk up hill on uphill side of this building, up to wire fence on top of hill. Walk along wire fence till you get to a boulder and onto an old fire trail. Turn right here for House of Praise crag or left for other crag.
