There are some "enter at your own risk" underground areas that accessable to the general public. The entrance chamber of Main Cave and Andre's Annex Cave (54m). These areas we consider to be a challenge rating of ✦✦✦✧✧ and are quite adventurous with low ceilings, tight spaces and vertical drops that require cave visitors to travel with caution. Helmets with headlamps are available for rent at the visitor centre for $6+ tax. Our Guided Tours are absolutely recommended for first time or nervous cavers.
