Marakoopa Cave Re-opens

05/08/2008

Marakoopa Cave at the Mole Creek Karst National Park has re-opened, six weeks after a rock fall near the entrance resulted in the cave being closed to the public.

Parks and Wildlife Service Northern Region manager, Chris Colley, said that wet weather caused the rock fall and was also responsible for delaying the work required to re-open the cave.

"Advice from a geotechnical engineer was that the steep slope above the cave entrance needed to be stabilised before the cave could be re-opened," Mr Colley said.

"This work involved trained staff working on ropes to check the stability of rocks on the steep slope and dislodge any loose rocks. It was quite difficult work that covered an area of about 50 metres wide by150 metres above the cave entrance."

"We're pleased that the work has been completed and the cave is again available to the public."
