Growling Swallet

Mt Field National Park

 

A few kilometres along the Florentine Valley from the Tim Shea turn off there is an access road (F8 EAST) to a place known as Growling Swallet.  The dramatic entrance to Junee cave.  It looks more like the entrance to an Incan temple.  The creek emerges at Maydena some 30 kilometres away on the other side of Mt Field.

 

At high water levels the cave growls as the the water enters the cave.

 

The drive from Maydena is about 1/2 an hour.  Turn right just west of Maydena along the Florentine road. A good mainly wide gravel logging road. Follow the road over the saddle by Tim Shea and into the Florentine Valley.  Take the F8 East road right to the end.  About 3 or 4 kilometres on a narrow track only just suitable for 2 wheel drives.  The walk to the cave is 45 minutes on a track that is flat and very wet in many places.

 

The F8 EAST road is now gated. The key to the gate is available at the Mt Field Visitors Centre.

One of the great Tasmanian rainforest walks.
