    Crystal Cave

    Little more than a wombat hole, the entrance to Crystal cave has been elusive until discovered in 1988.

     

    After adventuring over, under and crawling through the cave, an entrance to a magnificent chamber appears.

     

    Chandeliers of aragonite and helictites crystals delicately suspend from the cave ceiling. Superb cave conditions have allowed pristine white crystals to form, presenting one mod the best displays of crystal pool, stalactites, flow stones, shawls, flutes, straws and moon milk in the Tuglow Karst.

     

    " This unimaginatively named cave has some of the best aragonite clusters in Australia in two chambers at its eastern end."
