Takaka Library: The Winter Series - Local Cave Discoveries

Friday 23rd June 2017

Come in from the cold and banish those winter blues. Escape to fascinating places, learn new things and leave inspired.

Several years ago, local cavers Rob Davies and Tony Salmon discovered two cave entrances at East Takaka. At Spittal Springs, over 6km of partially flooded horizontal passages and beautifully decorated chambers have been mapped.

At nearby Ironstone Creek, a cave entrance led to one of the most spectacular vertical caves in the country.

Rob will describe the challenging exploration of these two very different caves. The talk will be illustrated with images by award-winning photographers Neil Silverwood and Martyn Farr.

Not to be missed!
