Special Notes

Please note: The talk is suitable for all ages but does involve up to half an hour in the Fossil Chamber, so may not be suitable for some young energetic children. Please also take into consideration about 400 metres of this cave has a developed pathway and constructed stairs. There are about 50 steps into the cave and a steep sloping path out of it, but the walk is relatively easy. To make your day as enjoyable as possible, please ensure that you wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, and bring along some sunscreen and bottled water. Itinerary may be amended or cancelled in the event of extreme weather, heat or fire threat conditions.
