National University Caving Club

ANU's one and only caving club since 1964

We run regular caving trips at many locations near Canberra and have weekly SRT sessions to learn rope skills. We do other activities including bushwalking, abseiling, canyoning, bouldering and even overseas expeditions. See our trip calendar for upcoming and past trips.

Membership lets you come on our trips and join in at SRT. Our facebook page has up-to-date info on the next trip. Feel free to “request to join” even if you are not yet a NUCC member.

Jenolan has long been one of NUCC’s favourite caving locations, as it has a wonderful range of varied caves with plenty to see in them. Plus, it has the added bonus of a caver’s cottage with all sorts of useful bits and pieces, like a microwave for the two-minute noodles. read more
