If you have been through the limestone caves west of Sydney, this cave won't do much for you and the electric lighting system hasn't worked for quite a while and looks beyond repair. The concrete steps and rope handrails make the walk fairly easy and you penetrate the cave for around 50 metres before coming to the fresh water pool. That's the end of the road. The pool is very deep and crystal clear. The local guides don't appear all that interested in keeping the place clean and you will see bits of rubbish here and there. What would possess some people to bring paper cups and food containers into this beautiful cave is beyond my comprehension. I have a bit of a torch fetish and carried along my small Cree 1,000 lumen baby. The guide handed us torches which were of little use. Once I turned mine on, he put his back in his pocket. Mine lit up the cave system like daylight and there is lots of natural limestone rock formations to see...stalagmites and stalactites are evolving everywhere, some probably thousands of years old. There are no bats. Just birds similar to swallows and they make a clicking sound to navigate in the darkness. It cost $10 Tongan each to get in but it was probably worth it. It is a step back into time itself but take a damn good torch or you will miss the lofty splendour of the place. We didn't go swimming in the deep fresh water pool but obviously others have and have enjoyed the experience.
