There is a hidden limestone cave beneath the picturesque pasture land of the Gunns Plains. It is full of sinkholes, underground streams, and rock formations like stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, diverse colours, calcite shawls, flowstones, rock formations, sparkling crystals and an abundance of glow-worms, cave spiders and crickets. Sprawling over 10 hectares, this cave is a state reserve and one of the earliest cave reserves in Tasmania. The stream that flows through has a rich aquatic life, such as freshwater crayfish, eels and other fishes. You will also find Platypus habitat on the sandy banks of the river. Silk-threads of Glow-worms hanging from the ceiling are wonderful. The guides are extremely humble and informative. You will find accommodation and refreshment facilities around the cave.

Loved the tour. Geoff was a great tour guide and had us laughing throughout the tour as well as explaining everything about the cave. Thanks for such an enjoyable experience. Cheers Lefty and Rob
Beautiful tourist cave, well worth the visit. Can be cold, and plenty of steps so be prepared
Highly recommended this attraction. Its great all year round. Spectacular natural wonder that should not be missed. Trish was our guide and was both knowledgeable and great with the kids, her passion was evident. This is not accessible for all people, a few steep stairs and a couple of low areas, however most people will handle this just fine. They are very understanding of questions and photography, I was impressed with their patience and professionalism. Great place for a picnic and trip with the family. Toilets are on-site and prices for the tour are quite reasonable for the experience. Will be back!
