Detailed Guide

 

Getting there

From Canberra, follow driving directions to Wee Jasper. Once you arrive at Wee Jasper, drive accross the bridge, through the town and turn left at the T-intersection following Wee Jasper Rd towards towards Tumut. Drive for about 3.5Km until you arrive at the next T-intersection with Nottingham Rd going of to the left and Wee Jasper Rd going towards Tumut to the right. Turn Right here, and then after about 50m turn left into the walking track camping area. Drive through to the other side of the camping area until you reach the Carpark at beginning of the walking track.

From the Carpark, follow the walking track up the hill. After about 100m you will pass an entrance to Dogleg cave on your right, continue up the hill and over the fence. After a few minutes of walking you will pass a small hole in the ground just too the left of the trail. This is a small cave consisting of one chamber which also has another entrance about 20m further down the trail. Continue past and just up the hill and around a right hand bend find a large Entrance labbelled as WJ7.

 

The cave

Signature cave requires no specialized gear and is fairly easy to navigate. Just inside the entrance there is some steep flowstones which are a little tricky to get down. From here you can continue to explore the lower and upper levels of the cave wich are linked to eachother via a vertical passage near the end of the cave. The Wee Jasper caves guide may be usefull for navigating the cave.
