8. Deepest Cave in Australia

Tasmania is the place to be for deep caves and thrilling climbs. Cavers should direct themselves to Niggly Cave. At 394 meters below ground level, this is by far the deepest cave in Australia. It’s filled with water in many parts which increases the climb’s difficulty, has plenty of pitches to compete with, and it’s absolutely freezing. Even just looking down into this cave is enough to make you shiver!

So there you have it – some of the interesting geographical facts of Australia and that’s without mentioning amazing features such as the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru (Ayer’s Rock), which are worth articles on their own! Have I inspired you to make an antipodean trip?
