Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park

Adventure down under

Travel deep beneath the surface to the fascinating underground world at Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park. Here you can join a ranger-guided tour through spectacularly-lit limestone caves, full of hidden beauty and hear about how this fascinating subterranean world was formed. If you are feeling adventurous, grab some torches and put on your stout boots for a clamber down into one of the caves that you can visit without a guide, or check out the caving adventure experiences offered by the local caving club for novices or more experienced cavers. There’s fun to be had above ground too—explore Aboriginal rock art shelters, take a ‘happy snap’ of Balancing Rock and visit the historic Chillagoe Smelters.
