Gunns Plains Cave
Underneath the rich and fertile river flats of Gunns Plains nature has worked some amazing magic. The limestone showcave was discovered in 1906. In the early days a rope had to be descended to enter the cave. Nowadays entry is via a set of 54 fairly steep steps, after which it is relatively flat, apart from descending a 10 rung step ladder.
You will be guided along the well-lit 275m route by Trish or Geoff who will point out calcite crystals, ribbon stalactites, flowstones and more with names including the Golden Fleece and the Wedding Cake. Make sure to wear comfortable, closed-in shoes and warm clothes.
A further kilometre of the cave has been mapped which is not open to the public, with at least one section requiring crawling through shallow water! The cave is part of the ten hectare Gunns Plains State Reserve which has toilets, wood bbq and a shelter hut. The nearby shop at Gunns Plains sells food and fuel.
Opening Hours: Generally tours run daily at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, and 3.30pm. Ring to confirm.
Open 7 days a week (closed Christmas Day).
