Sunday 7th Feb: Gloucester Caves Day Trip
Active stream caves with glowworms, cave crickets, gecko’s, bats. In the water; freshwater shrimp, fish, tortoises etc. Also lots of excellent 375 million year old fossils in the cave walls. Two blind valleys form catchments for the streams which run into the 2 caves and the water eventually comes out the other side of the mountain, although we can’t physically get right through to the other side as they end in sumps of deep water. If you want to go right to the end of the cave prepare to get wet, although there’s a lot of cave to traverse before getting to the wet bit.
I would suggest meeting in the main street of Gloucester by 8:30am and then driving out in convoy- don’t be late! There are 2 main caves and I would like to do one before lunch and one after lunch. Lunch back at the cars, only a short 20-50m away. Please email Garry or Melissa if you would like to attend. Melissa will write your name in the trip book.
This trip is open to MSS members. I will be restricting the numbers of participant to 16, so if you want to participate get in early.
