Fantastic news for small disabled adults and disabled children who may now view one of Victorias most scenic attractions thanks to Parks Victoria.
The news from Parks Victoria:
A new Stairclimber at Buchan Caves Reserve will enable children and small adults with limited mobility to see the beauty of the Fairy Cave for the first time. Fairy Cave has many steps, narrow passageways and uneven ground, making cave access for visitors with significant mobility limitations not possible in the past, but this equipment will let them experience one of the most spectacular viewing areas of the cave.
The Stairclimber is operated by an experienced cave guide and bookings are required in advance. Use of the Stairclimber is free but a cave tour fee still applies.

Over 300 million years ago when ancient rivers flowed and seeped through limestone rock to carve out formed the Buccan Caves. Europeans first explored them in the early 1900’s.
Lyrebirds are frequently seen in the cave reserve, especially near the entrance to The Fairy Cave.
These caves are visually rich is limestone formations. The Royal Cave is noted for its calcite-rimmed pools.
Walkways in the caves are well lit, and guided tours are conducted daily. You can camp in the Caves Reserve above ground. You will love the closeness of nature. It's an excellent place to take children and allow them the experience of being close to kangaroos, bellbirds and, if they remember to be quiet around dawn and dusk, hopefully, add the joy of seeing a lyrebird to their visit to Buccan Caves Reserve.
