Hot! The best place was underground.


We have had some scorching weather here recently and last Friday we reached temperatures in the mid forties, about 113 Farenheit.  It was incredibly hot.  We had our elder daughter and two of our grandchildren staying with us and we had planned to go to Buchan Caves that day even before we knew it was going to be a hot day, I am so glad we did.

The caves are about an hour’s drive from Metung.  We arrived about ten o’clock so we were there before the caves became busy.

The entrance to the cave is dungeon like.  When the door was opened by the tour guide you could feel the rush of lovely cool air which was most welcome after the scorching heat outside.

The caves really are beautiful.  We visited the Royal Caves.

After we had finished our tour of the caves we went to the naturally fed swimming pool.  This pool is fed by water from the underground river in the cave system.

It was the ideal spot to be on such a blisteringly hot day.  The water was bracing when you first entered but then it was ideal.  It was a lovely way to finish off our visit to the caves.
