1834 Glory Arch discovered by the stockman John Bowman and explored with bark torches.


North Glory Hole has the hugest stalactites at Yarrangobilly. Although it is a true show cave with light and paths, it is not guided regularly. Only groups may visit the cave after appointment.

The entrance to North Glory Hole is called Glory Hole or Glory Arch. It is the first cave discovered in the area in 1834 by the stockman John Bowman. The entrance section is rather huge and so it was easy to visit, and he explored it with bark torches.
