Baiame Cave is located in the foothills of the eastern side of the Great Dividing Range in Milbrodale, on privately owned land just a few kilometres north of the boundary of Yengo National Park in New South Wales.
Warren has been taking educational and private tour groups to Baiame Cave for more than four years. The physicality of the cave with its large figure believed to be Baiame—who is understood by some Aboriginal people across NSW to be the creator, the ‘Father of All’, the most important ancestor and law-maker—as well as its many drawings and stencils, its impressive size and panoramic views over the valley, help to create a very special experience for visitors. The site is also of state significance as a rare and representative indigenous rock art painting site in NSW.
Baiame Cave is of state significance for its association with the main figure depicted in the cave, believed to be Baiame. The site is also significant for its history and associations with the Wonnarua, the Aboriginal people who are the traditional custodians of the artwork prior to and post colonisation.
The paintings are representative of the traditional heritage of the Aboriginal people of the Hunter Valley and of NSW.
