Cave proves popular over holiday break

Record numbers of visitors visited the Tantanoola Cave last month.

Statistics reveal the vast majority of tourists came from Victoria and South Australia and this is in line with soaring tourism numbers across the South East over the festive season.

The Tantanoola Cave has a year-round temperature of 17 degrees and is regarded as an ideal place to “beat the heat”.

It has been delighting locals and tourists alike since it was discovered in 1930 by local teenager Boyce Lane (now deceased).

Fronting the Princes Highway, the Lane family were custodians for many years followed by a long period when it was controlled by local government.

Nowadays, the Tantanoola Cave is managed by the State Government’s Department of Environment and Water.
