Granite Caves

Granite Caves in Victoria





There are five granite boulder caves in Victoria. Granite caves are different to limestone caves in that they are not formed by the same process, rather carved out by running water. Some of these granite caves have been frequently used due to their location and the fact that they are generally not challenging. There are basically no decorations in granite caves, such as crystals or formations, due to the different way they are formed. If you can imagine a big pile of jumbled rocks with a river running through the middle, that’s your typical granite boulder cave.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to damage to the caves and the ecosystems within and around the caves, ALL information about the granite caves in Victoria has been temporarily removed. This is to save the sites that have already sustained a lot of damage from misuse and overuse.

This will be reviewed in the future. Whether the information is re-posted will depend on review of the cave environments and implementation of harm reduction strategies. Please do not email for information as it will not be given. Thanks!
