Novice caving tours

Stick-Tomato Cave

Stick-Tomato Cave is a great introduction to adventure caving. This cave is dry and there is no running or standing water. The tour requires some walking and crawling through an unlit cave. There are some fun squeezes and challenges for those who wish to try – but they are optional.

Duration: 90 minutes

Bookings are essential.

Starburst Chamber

This longer tour visits the Starburst Chamber and other spectacular parts of the Victoria Fossil Cave not accessible to the general public. The crawl into the chamber is considerable and a reasonable level of fitness is required.

Fox Cave

Fox Cave is in a relatively natural state and can only be accessed by 4WD. After squeezing through a tight entrance, you’ll come across high-ceilinged chambers, wide passages, low crawls and some exquisitely decorated areas. This cave is a bat wintering site, so you may see hibernating groups clinging to the ceiling. Fox Cave also contains some fascinating fossil deposits and sand cones.
