Cocklebiddy - Subterrainean Cave System.
Trip Start Feb 22, 2004

While we were having breakfast we were visited by the, now stranded in the mud, Kombi owners requesting assistance to be towed the 4 or 5 Km back to the main road. We advised we were happy to assist, but as we would want to move on once we reached the hard top, we would not attempt to return to see the cave. If they were happy to wait until we had seen the cave we would be happy to help.
So we went down into the cave and explored until we reached a body of water which stopped our adventure. The cave system is a long limestone cave which connects into a subterranean aquifier. It is essentially a series of large caverns and subterranean lakes with 90 per cent of the cave underwater. An amazing challenge to divers. It was well worth the visit.
On emerging from the cave we noted the Kombi's had gone, and another 4WD was just pulling up. We were passing pleasantries about the cave and if it was worth going down when the other driver mentioned, that on the way in he had come across a heap of very naked males and females pushing two Kombi's through the mud.
