Highland Caving Group
Founded in 1957, the Highland Caving Group has a reputation for competence, ethics, safety, environmental responsibility and friendliness. It has been a Corporate Member club of the Australian Speleological Federation Inc. since 1964. While the focus is on caves, most members also enjoy other outdoor activities including bushwalking, rock-climbing, canyoning, canoeing and cross-country skiing. Alongside that is a peerless social atmosphere. We enjoy.
Members interests cover limestone, sandstone, volcanic and sea caves. Most activity has been in lesser-known karst areas in NSW, but most members have also travelled interstate or overseas pursuing their interest.
Many trips are based on enjoyment of the senses only possible in a cave environment. Others have a more scientific purpose including exploration and surveying along with observation and recording of cave geology, geomorphology, hydrology, meteorology, palaentology, mineralogy and the many aspects of biology
