Caving

A new experience awaits below ground level

Mount Gambier and the surrounding Limestone Coast region is home to an extensive subterranean network of limestone sinkholes and caves.

This spectacular, water-filled cave network has been created over thousands of years by the constant slow drip of rainwater through porous limestone.

There are thought to be 800 caves across the local region.

A number of these are located on land managed by ForestrySA and are popular among experienced cave divers and adventurers from across Australia and the globe.

Cave entry and diving is only permitted for trained and qualified cavers who are members of the Cave Divers Association of Australia (CDAA) and Australian Cave Explorers (ACE).

A permit is required to enter all ForestrySA sinkholes and caves – scroll down to book yours now.
