    Ivan Milat at Wombeyan Caves Road

    Three of the Milat brothers (I believe Wally and Bill are among the owners) owned a small property on the Wombeyan Caves road, twenty five miles from Belangalo. The brothers used the place for camping and shooting practice.

Below is the transcript of the the full letter : “Hello and may all be well with both of you and your family. Things are fairly crook with me but while I in mind and…
