The Caves is the second loop north of Rockhampton and has recently been upgraded with concrete slepers and welded rail. It is also one of the best locations in the area to get some great photos of trains heading in both directions. The loop blocks the towns main access road when a train is waiting for a meet forcing the residents to use a timber bridge a few kilometers north of the town.
