Your Gooniyandi guides invite you to join them on an inspiring guided tour of one of Australia’s most spectacular and significant natural geological sites. Mimbi caves is a place of deep spiritual significance to the Gooniyandi people as well as being one of the most significant Devonian fossil sites in the world.
The tour begins with a fascinating walk between towering Karst cliffs to the caves entrance. Along the way your guide will share traditional knowledge of local bush tucker, bush medicine and the native flora and fauna found around the cave system.
After a quick check of torches you enter the caves. The walls of the cave are abundant with marine fossils, layers of sedimentary limestone and richly coloured ochres that stain the walls. Natural light enters the cave system through holes in the cave roof making it possible to navigate through the cave and casting light on ancient rock paintings, each of which has its own unique connection to the caves and local people.
During the tour enjoy traditional Billie Tea and damper, made the traditional way using native seeds, around the campfire.
