Buchan Caves (Limestone formation): Near the township of Buchan, lies a honeycomb of caves full of spectacular limestone formations. The limestone at Buchan formed about 380 million years ago under very shallow seas which covered much of East Gippsland. A later period of movement of the earth’s crust raised this area above sea level. The caves were formed by underground rivers cutting through the limestone with formations created by rain water seeping through cracks and dissolving limestone. Discover the beautiful calcite-rimmed pools of Royal Cave, and the elaborate stalactites and stalagmites of Fairy Cave on a guided tour.
