Cocklebiddy Cave 2015
Written by Andrew Pitkin

Cocklebiddy Cave in Western Australia is iconic in the history of cave diving. For many years the longest underwater cave in the world, it has seen some heroic efforts at exploration over the last 40 years. In September 2015 the Cave Divers Association of Australia invited me to speak at their annual conference, and I was lucky enough to be able to incorporate a trip to Cocklebiddy Cave as a guest of the Wet Mules. The entire cave is wonderful, but sump 2 in particular is some of the most spectacularly beautiful underwater cave passage I have seen.

CDAA looks to increase access to Tank Cave
Wednesday, 29 April 2015 22:43

The Cave Divers Association of Australia (CDAA) is looking to further increase cave diving access to Tank Cave, site of two cave diving deaths in 2011.

In an email to association members, the National Committee have asked members to consider allowing Cave rated divers access to the site. Currently, only Advanced Cave trained members can dive in Tank Cave.

Tank Cave, located in the lower south east of South Australia, has long been considered the jewel in the crown of sites whose sole diving access is through the CDAA. The site was purchased by the association in 2010 for a sum well above land value. In 2011, two cave divers, trained to the highest level within the association (Advanced Cave), died in separate diving incidents in the cave. Full accident analyses have yet to be published. Since these incidents, the association has twice eased access restrictions to dive the cave by allowing the site to be used for training dives and easing the Tank Cave dive familiarisation schedule.

Pannikin Plains Cave - the amazing escape
Saturday, 07 March 2015 21:54

An astonishing survival story in Australian cave diving: in November - December, 1988, a team of Australian and international explorers entered the massive Pannikin Plains Cave. Their expedition mission: to explore the extensive submerged cave system that lay 50 metres underground. Little did they know on the final day of their expedition a massive storm was heading their way. The effects were stunning: torrential rain and flooding caused tons of boulders and dirt to collapse in the cave entrance trapping the crew of divers underground. In this segment, two of the survivors, Chris and Sonia Brown, recount their dramatic survival and the subsequent rescue of the team of cave divers.
