GUNNS PLAINS CAVES

 

 

 

A little over 20 kilometres south of Ulverstone is the very fertile farming community of Gunns Plains.  Here you will find a very good limestone cave as well as two waterfalls at either end of a very fine stand of Tasmanian Blackwood trees.  The commencement of the Leven Canyon section of the Penguin to Cradle trail commences at the southern end of the valley on the western side of the Leven river.  There is also the very popular holiday farm in the valley - Wing's Wildlife Park.

 

The largest 'ribbon' stalactite in the world is in the Gunns Plains limestone cave (pictures above).  Very pretty.

 

Formation known as the 'Golden Fleece'.  There are glow worms in the cave also.  Unlike many caves, they are close enough to touch.

 

 

 

Above left: Start of the Leven Canyon walk.  A very hard walk for experience bush walkers only.  When we visited a section above the gorge it was virtually impassable due to a combination of fallen trees and the very sheer cliffs the track passes along. Right: Tasmanian Blackwood between the Preston falls.

 

 

Mix with the animals at Wings Wildlife park!
