Mount Buffalo Underground River Caving
We have ceased all group caving adventures until the Covid 19 crisis is over and governments advise us that it is safe to run this type of adventure again - Can be purchased as a gift certificate to use at a later date
Please put date you have booked in for in (Note to Seller).
The underground river cave at Mt Buffalo is a horizontal boulder infill type cave, some 350 metres long. (we normally only travel the first 150 metres or so) It has a number of exits.
There is an active steam in the cave and when water levels are moderate, there are numerous rapids and waterfalls to challenge the caving team.
This cave is wet and cold with tight squeezes and slippery rocks. It is a horizontal cave so no roped work is needed for access and it is all crawling and squeezing, scrambling, climbing and teamwork.
We normally conduct this caving from November to end of April - Advertised Caving trips are run on selected weekends, School holidays and Public holidays.
We cab also run "by arrangement" Cave trips for schools and groups
You will need:
Clothes - Thermal underwear and or warm synthetic clothes such as an old track suit or fleece clothing (Long Trousers and Long Sleeves as you will be crawling on hands and knees at times). The underground river is a cold wet cave, but great fun.
Footwear - Sturdy runners or boots (Open toe sports sandals are not acceptable)
Medication - Medication as required (such as an asthma puffer)
