Newdegate Caves Hastings Tasmania

We had a wonderful 45 minute tour of the dolomite caves near Hastings. We were 40m underground when at the lowest level of the caves. Most caves in Australia are made of limestone but these caves are of dolomite.

The photo above shows stalactites.

These are helictites.

These are flowstones.

Flowstone floor.

Fantastic formations. It was a great tour.
