Princess Margaret Rose Cave – Lower Glenelg National Park

For around 700 000 years water has dripped through the porous limestone along the edge of the Glenelg River, hollowing out a subterranean wonderland of caves with strange crystallised formations. Minerals and tannins washing through the limestone have left their trace in a range of hues. The Princess Margaret Rose Cave, 20 metres down and 150 metres long, is the only cave accessible to the public, with regular tours run by park rangers. You can cruise by boat from the township of Nelson up the Glenelg River to reach the cave and its surrounding parkland. Alternatively, you can drive from Nelson or Dartmoor.
