Stunning drone footage of Lionel Buckett's cave home at the base of Mount Tomah in the Blue Mountains.

There are cave dwellers in the Blue Mountains.

The oldest rocks in the range were formed from marine sediments deposited some 400 million years ago. This cave, metamorphosed to its contemporary form, is a few months old.

Just visible in a cliff face a few kilometres from the botanic gardens at the base of Mt Tomah, it has world heritage views of Mount Wilson and rain forest. This is the creation of sustainable builder Lionel Buckett who has built eco lodges and a tree house on his 626 acres of land.
