Today is the first day of my internship at Naracoorte Caves. I’m down here to do some work on the conservation of the caves themselves. I’ll be down here for about a week before coming back to Adelaide to work on the report (though I may yet find myself back down here in the new year).
So far its been fantastic, and just a bit full on. I arrived lunch time yesterday, and jumped straight into looking around Victoria Fossil Cave. I’ve spent this morning crawling around on my hands and knees while getting acquainted with Wet Cave, before heading to Blanche Cave where there is some amazing historic graffiti.
This afternoon I’ve been investigating Alexandra Cave, and will soon head back to Wet Cave to see if I can find any historic graffiti there, as well as taking another look at some of its conservation issues…
