SUSS cavers looking out over the Cooleman Plain.

Trip List

All upcoming trips are listed here. Email the trip leader to sign up.

All trips are suitable for beginners, unless otherwise stated. It is YOUR responsibility to inform the trip supervisor of any relevant medical conditions which may in any way affect your fitness, such as diabetes, asthma and the like. There will usually be costs involved when going on any trip. Check the Beginner’s Handbook for information on the expected costs, for area-specific information, and general info about caving. Alternatively, ask the trip coordinator or your driver if you still have doubts about how much a trip will cost you.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to join a trip, please get in touch with the trip leader and let them know 2 weeks prior to the trip (you may be able to sign up closer to the time but this is dependent on numbers):

  • Your previous experience with caving (if none, that’s okay!)
  • What suburb you are leaving from and if you require a ride or can provide one for others
  • If you need to borrow SUSS gear. Things you’ll need for the trips that can be borrowed from SUSS include:
    • helmets
    • head torches (bring your own batteries - 8 x AA)
    • overalls
    • tents

For more information, please read through our Beginners Handbook.

BUSHFIRES HAVE IMPACTED MANY CAVING AREAS, WHICH HAS LIMITED OUR CAVING ACTIVITY. HOPEFULLY, SUSS WILL BE BACK TO IT’S USUAL SCHEDULE SOON. Please email the committee if you have ideas for alternate trips.
