Site Description: 

Burnabbie Cave was first discovered in 2003. This fragile cave hosts numerous interesting features similar to Olwolgin Cave including: rocks covered in black bacteria, hanging roots and green tannic water. Explorations have seen this strictly side-mount cave extended to approximately 3000m of passage. Entrance to the cave is a 50m crawl to an underground surface lake. Care must be taken during the warmer months as the entrance can have high levels of CO2 and possible hydrogen sulphide.
