Cocklebiddy Cave

Cocklebiddy is well known for its large cave systems. Ten kilometres northwest of the Cocklebiddy Roadhouse lies Cocklebiddy Cave. In 1983, this cave was expedited to a distance of 6.4 kilometres! By 1995, this distance had been increased on by a further 20 metres depth. The cave system penetrates an aquifer that is ninety metres below the Nullabor Plain. For several hundred metres the Cocklebiddy Cave contains a number of limestone caverns, rock falls and saline subterranean lakes.

* Caution - Caving in the Cocklebiddy area is only for highly organised and experienced caving groups. You must advise someone else where you are going and when you plan to return in case you get into trouble*
