Wallaby in Wombeyan Caves.

There are caves and karst areas found throughout Australia. Check out our listing of caves to be found throughout Australia.

In addition we have listings of local and regional Cave Groups and Clubs, and links to other information about speleology and karst.

speleology:
The scientific study of caves. Exploration of caves.

karst:
An area of irregular limestone in which erosion has produced fissures, sinkholes, underground streams, and caverns. “Karst” is a Slovene/German word used to describe landscapes that are developed principally by chemical processes rather than physical processes. Such chemical processes usually consist of the erosion of limestone rock by acidic water. Water can become acidic as it moves through vegetation matter on the Earth’s surface. While caves and caverns are characteristic features of karst areas, not all karst areas have caves.
