Caving! 1-Apr-2005 At 6:37:24 PM elephant
I have to agree with you Neil. Caving in Australia, esp in Victoria is very different from caving in other countries. In UK they do have caving guide books like what we have with climbing.

We only have something over 800 caves tagged in Victoria so far (mind you, some of them aren't even caves), we are trying to preserve the caves, so those drunken yobbos won't be throwing party and rubbish down the caves and breaking the fragile decorations, that's the reason why there's no caving guide (apart from the extremely outdated karst index which doesn't tell you where the caves are anyway), and the major caves are gated. Also, a huge portion of the caves in Victoria are actually on private properties.

However, unlike VCC, the VSA (Victorian Speleological Association) actually does surveying, mapping, and maintaince works on the caves. They have a library of information on the caves. All you need to do to get access to these information is be a member. They even maintain good relationships with most of the private land owners.

If anybody wants to find out more, PM me.
