CLIEFDEN CAVES ARE UNDER THREAT!
Cliefden Caves are an amazing underground wonderland of caves and fossils unique to Australia. They are under threat from flooding by proposed dams on the Belubula River in Central West NSW. The Save Cliefden Caves Association represents a broad coalition of locals, land owners, cavers, environmental groups and concerned citizens who oppose dams on the Belubula River that would impact Cliefden Caves.
Cliefden Caves is home to over 100 pristine caves, 460 million year old fossils and a rare thermal spring. Learn more...

Belubula dam on the horizon
Thanks to the diligence and care of local landowners and cavers, these unique caves remain in pristine condition with access restricted to scientific researchers and bona fide speleologists.
So while they're in good hands, you'll probably be helping to save the most beautiful place you may never visit!
