Peter Bell and his team of dedicated cave conservationists spend their days ensuring that the remarkable caves in the Margaret River Region remain as untouched by human interaction as possible.
There can’t be many places in the world where the sights below ground are as breathtaking as those above, but that’s exactly the case in the Margaret River Region. With numerous highly decorated limestone caves lying beneath the surface of the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge, it’s fair to say that if you’re a cave lover, you’ve come to the right place.
Formed over millions of years, a few of these complex and fragile karst systems are open to the public, providing an extraordinary natural attraction for visitors to the region.
There are four tourist caves under the purview of the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association, and cave specialist Peter Bell heads up the group of behind-the-scenes defenders whose brief is to care for and preserve the caves for future generations.
