Entering the cave through the mouth of Magog, we are taken downstairs lit by lava lamps, a scene straight out of an evil villain's lair in a spy movie. The cave opens up to an expansive living area with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. We excitedly explored the cave and headed outside to meet the horse once again, named "Parisha". She kept us company our whole stay and became a new best mate for our son. The cave is set into the side of the hill with spectacular lush views across the property and to the dam below.
Our host, Carl kindly provided a generous breakfast hamper with plenty of supplies for the whole weekend. We soon slipped into cave life, relaxing by the fire and enjoying our first underground experience. The bedrooms are extremely comfy and unique, complementing the cave atmosphere.
We spent the weekend living it up underground and exploring the natural wonders of the region. With visits to the famous Noojee Trestle Bridge and Toorongo Falls, the lush forest at the foothills of Baw Baw was as relaxing as it was visually stimulating. Cave life was a completely new experience for us, so unique and incomparable to anywhere else we had stayed. Short of a long drive to Coober Pedy, The Cave is the next best way to try out life underground. When we had to leave the quiet and calmness of the cave, we did so feeling refreshed and in awe of a different way of life....
