Gunns Plains Cave
Caves Office
Mr. Bill Woodhouse entered Gunns Plains Cave in 1906 after a hunting trip and discovered a series of caverns and short passages through which visitors are escorted along well lit concrete pathways. The cave entrance is situated 30 metres from the car park. Upon entry, a flight of 54 concrete steps is descended. From this point, the pathway is fairly level apart from a short ladder to be climbed down. The tour route into the cave is 275 metres in and 220 metres return. Occasional dampness underfoot is not troublesome provided visitors wear low-heeled walking shoes. It is not recommended for those with health or mobility concerns. Please check first. The cave was formed by an underground stream that still flows and contains Giant Freshwater Lobster, fish and eel. Platypus sleep and nest in the sandy banks along the river. Lofty chambers contain many varied formations including magnificent calcite shawls. The cave is renowned for magnificent shawl and flowstone formations. Improvements including LED lighting will assist visitors to enjoy the cave experience. Gunns Plains Cave is open daily (closed Christmas Day). Please see our website for tour times.
