Topic: Outback Oz: Debunking by Spelunking!

Explanation: Since I have recently been bitten by several conspiricy bugs [hollow earth, Thule, etc [Thanks ATS!]] and had just finished reading H.P. Lovecrafts "Mountains of Madness" in which were discribed subterrainian abodes and I was inspired to hunt down some old family Photo Albums containing pictures of me over 20yrs ago in the process of spelunking [caving] in the outback!

Heres what I came up with...

1stly the 1st set of pix are all related.


PersonalDisclosure: More too come in next post!
[pls ignore the strange mirage at top of the 6th pix as I forgot to crop it after pasting it from elsewhere and I only just noticed. :shk: soz me a

P.S. I or my Uncle Byron retain all rights concerning these pictures. Please U2U me if want untouched originals for commercial use. [Except of course the GoogleEarth screen capture which of course GoogleEarth retains the rights to.]

Disclaimer: As Above and is still totally APT!

Explanation: These following pix have nothing to do with the above crater and come many different caves somewhere out in the Nullabour Plains.

PersonalDisclosure: I'm fully willing to discuss my Outback Underground Adventure [or what I can remember as it was over 20yrs ago
] and anything in the pictures that you may find curious etc. I found the pigtail salt and the sand dunes several kms underground to be mindblowing at the time!
Hope you enjoy the pix!

Nice pictures, but what the hell had you guys been consuming to make your faces go like that? I know Aussies' like to drink...

Mountains of Madness is an awesome read, although everything Lovecraft is - there's rumours of Guillermo Del Toro filming it, apparently a pet project of his and personally I think the only person for the job.

Anyhoo - did you come across anything down there, how deep did you go? Personally I don't see anything odd, although the sand-dunes sound interesting, are there any photos of them, how do they occur?

Very cool thread...

I just bought a very, very nice camera to aid in my own trips underground and in fact moved central to where ill be going...

Just had my 4 year and 10 year old back in a cave 10 days ago... lol (not a serious one)

But I might get the chance to join this thread in the near future with pics...

These caves are great!!!!

i have a story...

we used to camp at Weebubbee caves on the nullabour plain. it was an adventure.
two years in row i drove across the nullabour plain with a bus full of backpackers and weebubbee cave was one of my favourite overnighters. we would pull up in the bush, make camp and then head undergound a few hundred metres and swim in the lake at the bottom.

we would take waterproof dolphin torches and goggles and snorkel around the lake shining the light under the water to see what we could see.

And what we could see! The water was so clear the torch beam would carry on for hundreds of metres through the water, lighting it all pale blue, it felt like you were flying weightless in a another world. Simply stunning.
sometimes you would shine your torch into crevases below that would go for ever, feeling the hairs stand on the back of your neck at void below, i shiver now.

My colleagues would do the same, and it was our favourite stop on the two week journey across to Perth from Adelaide.

Then one day i was with a co-worker and we were having a chat when someone said did you hear about weebubbee?
No, what ?we said
It collapased!!!!!
we just looked at each other and went f%$...
There were two french divers in there at the time, some how they made it out!
i dont think we would have been so lucky, i don't know. Never want to find out!!!

Thanks for sharing these pictures, i will try and find some i have , eh.

I like free diving in fresh water springs.. but I'm always nervous to go around the actual spring heads.
Had a good reason to, couple of summers back. I was near the bottom when suddenly the water was filled with silt.
Turned out the mouth of the cave had collapsed into the tunnel. Luckily there was space enough for the divers who'd been in the cave to get out.

I've not seen caves in the desert, but I think they form by sand being blown in by wind, and the wind then pushing the sand down into the cave system, forming the dunes.

Imagine they'd look pretty cool, geting shaped by the tunnel as well as the wind.
