“Buchan Caves Reserve is famous for its cave system, full of spectacular limestone formations. The caves were formed over many thousands of years by underground rivers cutting through limestone rock.
As each droplet comes through the roof it deposits calcite which crystallises in a small ring. In time, stalactites are formed on the roof of the cave, and stalagmites build up from droplets which fall to the floor.”
For more information on tours and access to the caves and surrounding activities, make sure to visit www.parks.vic.gov.au/stay or in person on the day at the Visitor Centre within the Reserve.
