Buchan Caves




Visit the underground splendour of stalactites and stalagmites in Buchan. A world of colour and enchantment below, you will marvel at the formations and maze of caves.

The magnificent limestone caves of Buchan are internationally renowned, their honeycombed beauty attracting visitors from right across the globe. Dating back over 300 million years, ancient rivers flowing and seeping through limestone rock formed the Caves. Europeans first explored them in the early 1900’s. The Fairy Cave was opened to the public in 1907, the Royal Cave in 1913, though in those early days they would not have been as safe to venture through as they are today. Both are now lit and have walkways, and a stair-climber and motorised all-terrain wheelchair make explorations available to even more people.

Each of the caves offer its own unique experience and due to the system's constant temperature of 17 degrees Celsius the tours are comfortable all year round.

The Fairy Cave presents a visual tapestry of rich limestone shapes and Royal Cave is noted for the calcite-rimmed pools. The Caves are fully lit with walkways. Guided tours are conducted daily in both. Tours to ‘wild’ caves can also be arranged for small groups.

Stay right at the Caves Reserve above ground. Camp or stay in Cabins, or try the Wilderness Retreats for a mix of both. Wildlife like kangaroos, bellbirds and lyrebirds are commonly seen within the reserve.

Within the Victorian Heritage Registered Caves Reserve are well-maintained picnic and barbecue areas with facilities for both day visitors and campers with powered and unpowered campsites. Unique, contemporary and comfortable safari-style tents are also available within the reserve.

Buchan Caves are 360km from Melbourne along the Princes Highway, 60 minutes from Bairnsdale or 45 minutes from Lakes Entrance.
