Marakoopa Cave closed due to rockfall

20/06/2008

Marakoopa Cave at the Mole Creek Karst National Park remains closed following a rockfall at the cave entrance last week.

A two-metre diameter rock fell onto a concrete path, blocking the cave's entrance.

Chris Emms, the Parks and Reserves Manager for Great Western Tiers/Mersey, said the cave is likely to remain closed until early July.

"During the next two weeks, the rock will be removed, the pathway repaired and other mitigation works will be undertaken to ensure visitor safety," Mr Emms said.

"During these works we'll take the opportunity to replace an existing access bridge at the site which had been planned to occur later in July. We now expect to complete all of these works within the next two weeks, with the cave to re-open in early July."
