Great experience, but not for the feint heqrted.
Mar 2021 • Solo
Lots of bees around the cave but once gouget inside it was really rewarding to explore. I found a family of bats deep insidethe cave, they were peaceful if not disturbed. My advice: Bring more than one torch, and move slowly outside the cave. Some bees may get curious and land on you, but as long as you stay still they will eventually leave you alone without stinging you.

Drovers Cave is a No-Go! Photos here are not of Drovers Cave!
Dec 2020
These Photos are of NOT of Drovers cave !!! You will end up bogged on a bad soft lonely tack if you navigate to Drovers Cave!

These photos are of Stockyard Gully Cave. 40km further north of Jurien Bay. Stockyard Gully Cave is well worth the visit 4x4 only

Bee careful in the caves
Nov 2020
Not in the normal map book but good log Google took us straight to the sand road, the sign is about 50 metres in, not visible from the road. Soft sand trail is suitable only for four wheel drive vehicles, no need to let your tyres down. No signs for the caves look for the taller trees and side roads. There were thousands of bees (not aggressive) and heaps of hives quite spectacular besides a little graffiti the caves are pristine. A good couple of hours in the bush.

Was really cool
Nov 2020 • Family
Been to Margs and seen the caves down there, which are pretty impressive .
But this cave at Drovers National Park, situated in the middle of the scrub ,is something different.
You can walk right through the cave a couple of hundred meters and there’s no lighting, it’s pitch black . Take a torch or use your phone torch. The road in is a 4 wheel drive only , we took the south entrance. Easy peasy. The cave has a sandy bottom and looks like in winter it is possibly a river bed. It was pretty cool , had a few hidey holes in there . If you are scared of the dark , I recommend don’t go in .

Narrow road
May 2020 • Couples
4wd track is very narrow, prepare to get scratches on your vehicle, soft sand in parts as well. South entrance is much closer. The tracks aren't sign posted at all so keep a look out for entrances.

GET A ROAD
Aug 2019
Would be nice if they put a bitumen road into the place there are a lot of people that cannot get there because it is only 4 x 4 driving Such a shame I have a 4 x 4 but would not take it on those roads about time the shire done something about it rather than spend money on cycle ways

Amazing Place
Sep 2019
Amazing place road in from South sandy but OK 4x4 only, go steady and all is good, North entrance road a shocker, avoid if possible 4x4 only again steady wins the race, Caves & stockyard gully worth the visit, not very well advertised at all by local Info centres but beautiful scenery. Beware of the bee hives at cave entrance,

Wonderful Experience - Stockyard Gulley
Aug 2018 • Couples
Visited Stockyard Gulley Caves in the Drovers National Park. The gulley can be accessed by tracks coming in from the North and South, however the South is the better track. Accessibly by 4WD only. DO NOT attempt in a 2WD.
The cave entrance is found along the river bed, which after a lot of rain is closed off by the Park Rangers. A torch is a must as its pitch black inside.
There is a very clean and maintained drop toilet.
A circular walk through the caves is also possible.
This activity is not suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs

Very worthwhile visit.
Apr 2019 • Family
Amazing shady walk through the river bed with eucalyptus trees on either side. Rock walls and feral bee hives were interesting to see. 9 yo daughter surprised a basking bobtail lizard on the walk in, that added to the experience. Great area for classic Aussie bush photographs. An easy return day trip for the family from Cervantes, with breakfast on the way there in Jurien, and a steak burger at the Jurien bakery for late lunch on the way back. Track in from south is sandy, recommend a 4wd if approaching from South.

Fun drive to the Stockyard Gully caves, not drovers caves.
Apr 2018 • Couples
I'm writing about the Stockyard Gully caves (never heard of the drovers cave) as this is the one advertised at the Jurien Bay visitors centre.
The cave is located about 40kms north of JB, , with the last 4-5 kms as a 4wd track (not heavy 4wd, but sandy track in places + limestone slabs and rocks at times; A Subaru could probably do it). Once at the site (there's a picnic area with toilets, etc), follow down the dry river bed to the cave. Do bring a good torch as it's pitch black inside. There's nothing grandiose about it, don't expect stalactites nor stalagmites as it's a dry cave but it's rather pleasant and cool inside even on a warm day. We didn't see any bats, but there's plenty of "feral" bees outside the cave (not inside). Good fun and the area would be pretty in Spring with the wildflowers.
