The Underground River Cave is a exciting granite boulder infill adventure cave, with squeezes to challenge you, rapids to clamber up, waterfalls and underground pools plus glowworms and cave insects in season. We provide two experienced leaders to guide you through the maze of tunnels and caverns.
For those who like a challenge and a dash of added adventure, Adventure Guides Australia's Underground River Caving on stunning Mount Buffalo is for you. Crawl through holes, climb up waterfalls and squirm your way through the spectacular granite boulder infill cave. If you are very lucky, you will see the ceiling of the caverns glow like stars at night with the spectacular variety of glow worms which are endemic to the region.
Intro: 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 stream 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, scrambling, climbing and teamwork. Day & Time: Normally run from November to the end of April, starts around 9am in the mornings or 1pm in the afternoons. We run advertised adventures on selected weekends or you can call us to arrange a private caving adventure for your family or group. We also run team and challenges adventures for business groups and schools.
