Do you have a sense of adventure? On this exciting 2.5 to 3hr tour of Castle Cave, you'll get to view one of the unlit caves rarely seen by visitors to Yarrangobilly Caves.
One of the more remote caves, in a location too isolated for electricity, Castle Cave was developed in the 1900s. After a 30-min hike up the Yarrangobilly Valley, you'll be given helmets and lights. Led by an experienced NPWS guide, you'll discover the cave's most wonderous crystal formations lit up by torch light. These include a vast array of speleothems, from formations like King Solomons Temple, to delicate straws and helicities.
After exploring the magic of Castle Cave, head off for a swim at the thermal pool. It's a pleasant 27 degrees celsius all year round.
There's no crawling involved on this cave tour, and helmets and head lights are provided. It's a good idea to wear sturdy, enclosed shoes and bring a jacket, even in the warmest weather.
