The MUST SEE when in Exmouth, Western Australia

In Google maps the spot is well marked, so you shouldn’t miss it even tho there is no sign what so ever. After one hour drive from Exmouth centre, on your right side will appear a hole in the ground with top of the tree in it. Between the tree and the cave entrance is a steel ladder.

The ladder is around 8 metres long, slippery and swinging from one side to the other. It looks as sketchy as it feels when you climb down.

So please hold tide, and climb slowly and steady. But once you are down there, it is so worth it! We have never seen such a unique cave!

And if you go there around noon, sun rays are coming through directly from the cave entrance and creating this gorgeous lighting inside.

And don’t worry, the way up on the ladder is so much easier, promise!
