The Caves of the Nullarbor
• The Nullarbor Plain is the largest single karst formation on the earth. Originally an ancient shallow seabed that has been uplifted, the region has been weathered by wind and rain, reducing it to the current flat plains. During this time many caves were formed under the Nullarbor. The area is unique as the only desert region with extensive caves containing large quantities of water. Although the water salinity varies, some of it is being used for stock watering. Current exploration of the many caves by speleologists are turning up frequent new findings.

There is an information display of the caves at Balladonia as part of the interactive museum. Here you can find how to access some of the easier and safer caves under the Nullarbor Plain.

  • Cocklebiddy Cave
    Is located under the Nullarbor and is Australia’s longest underwater cave at 6.7 km.
