Site Description: 

Once known as the "Middle of the Road", Allendale East Cave is a steeply sloping cave approximately 80m long, with a maximum depth of about 24m. 

Access to the water is via a crude stairway cut into the doline. A rope may be required as it is very steep and can get quite slippery. At the bottom of the doline is a small pool large enough for two divers. The dive begins with a "duck-under", which takes divers to the main cave slope. The floor of the cave consists primarily of rubble and loose rock, covered in a deep layer of dark brown silt. Care must be taken to prevent silting. At its deepest point, divers will find themselves in a large chamber, with plenty of room to look around. 


Site Access Requirements:

  • Collect key from Lady Nelson Visitor Centre - 35 Jubilee Hwy East, Mount Gambier. Key can be collected during business hours.
  • Upon arriving at the site, park vehicles on the grassed area to the South West, well away from the road. Take great care when crossing the road. 
  • Keep the gate locked while diving. 
  • Key to be returned to Lady Nelson Visitor Centre at conclusion of diving - can be returned after hours.
Please note there are only two keys for this site - please be considerate in the amount of time you hold them.
