The Sherbrook carpark at the start of the track to Thunder Cave and Broken Head has angled parking for standard-sized vehicles. There is one designated disabled parking bay which is approximately six metres long and 2.5 metres wide and designed for rear disembarking. There is no parking for long vehicles or buses.
Thunder Cave viewing area is accessed via a sealed path leading from the carpark. This path is approximately 2.8 metres wide and has a gradual slope of approximately 1:18.
The Thunder Cave viewing area is approximately 550 metres from the carpark and is located 15 metres from the main path.
The main path continues until it forks off to Broken Head in one direction and Sherbrook River in the other.
The path to Broken Head is sealed most of the way and is slightly undulating. The last 40 metres of the path to the viewing area is unsealed and consists of a surface of compacted small to medium size gravel.
The viewing area has a compacted dirt surface with timber safety railings and there is a bench seat.
The path leading to the Sherbrook River entrance is sealed and slopes down towards the river. It is quite steep with a gradient of approximately 1:12.
The last 80 metres of the path to the river entrance is very narrow, at approximatle 70 centimetres wide, making it unsuitable for wheelchairs and strollers.
The final section to the river mouth has several steps.
