Enter the Darkness
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Most Australians are a bit fed up of the winter - it seems to be lasting forever. Not enough sunny days and far too many wet ones. However, sometimes you have to embrace the darkness and explore some new places.
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service has some interesting cave tours on offer that may make you realise that a life in the dark isn't too bad.
The Abercrombie Karst Conservation Reserve's Archway Cave is steeped in gold-mining history and has a tour which features extensive automatic lighting and loads of information about the cave - it's ideal for a self-guided tour.
Tours run during the day and at night - although let's be honest they are in caves so you probably won't be able to tell if it is day or night outside! You will see amazing crystalline structures in some of the caves as well as many steeped in history - one of the caves was used a hideout for the notorious Ribbon gang in 1830.
If you have time for only one tour, visit any cave. If you have time to visit more than one cave, why not take advantage of our cave passes and multi cave packages?
