Australia has a lot to offer anyone seeking a caving experience. The ancient, natural formation of limestone caves are bounteous in this beautiful and partially untamed country. The term ‘Down Under’ could take on a new meaning for you whether you are seeking a fully equipped exploration, a short adventure or simply a glimpse of some magnificent stalagmites and stalactites.
Caving is an age-old pastime in Australia, ranging from the times when local aborigines recorded parts of their history with their rock art to modern enjoyment of caving as a recreational activity. You can walk through and explore some caves; crawl, wriggle and climb your way through others; or even dive and swim through underground caverns, all within the world’s most spectacular island continent.
Australia offers caving in a variety of locations from the popular Jenolan Caves, near Sydney, where you can visit the stunning Blue Lagoon, through to the hundreds of caves in the Margaret River
region near Perth
. Experience adrenaline-filled days out, awe-inspiring views and a perspective that you would never have imagined. Not all visitors to Australia’s caves are expected to be thrill-seekers though, there are plenty of tours which offer the relaxed tourist a glimpse of magic without strenuous exercise. Keep a look out for native fauna and flora. You may see anything from native orchids to tiny bats and shimmering, iridescent glow worms.
