Underground River Caving
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 and teamwork.
We conduct this caving from November to end of April - selected weekends and School and Public holidays for advertised adventures and by arrangement for schools and groups
You will need:
Thermal underwear and or warm synthetic clothes such as an old track suit or fleece clothing (Long Trousers and Long Sleeves) as the underground river can be a cold cave.
Sturdy runners or boots (Sports sandals are not acceptable)
Medication as required (such as an asthma puffer)
A full change of shoes and clothing and a towel for when you finish the cave as we will get very wet!
A plastic bag for wet and dirty clothing at the end of the Adventure!
