Burnabbie Cave Select this option
Address: Madura, 6443
Western Australia Australia
Site Description: 

Burnabbie Cave was first discovered in 2003. This fragile cave hosts numerous interesting features similar to Olwolgin Cave including: rocks covered in black bacteria, hanging roots and green tannic water. Explorations have seen this strictly side-mount cave extended to approximately 3000m of passage. Entrance to the cave is a 50m crawl to an underground surface lake. Care must be taken during the warmer months as the entrance can have high levels of CO2 and possible hydrogen sulphide.

No CDAA training of any sort is to be conducted in this site.
Site Access is restricted divers in side mount configuration only. Back mount twins and back mount rebreathers are not permitted.
