HISTORY

They are located 23 km (14 miles) north of Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. The limestone caves are one of the largest privately owned cave systems in Australia. The caves developed into limestone that was formed from corals that grow in shallow water around volcanic islands.

WHY THIS PLACE

After being exposed on land, the limestone was dissolved by acid rain and groundwater. It was first discovered in 1881 by a Norwegian immigrant John Olsen. He went on to claim the land under a leasehold title and open the attraction publicly in 1884.

CURIOSITIES

Rappelling, rock climbing, hunting and animal watching can all be tried on the 33 hectare property. A range of accommodation facilities are available to visitors. The complex contains a geo-discovered building that is used for school education programs in biology, geology and environmental studies.
