Heading underground into the Tumu Tumu Cave, you’ll be fully equipped with helmet, lights wetsuit and PVC gumboots for this amazing adventure. Journeying through the underground you walk and float your way on tyre tubes through the amazing underground rivers and cave formations, where stalactites and stalagmites columns  and amazing glowworm formations are the stars of the show.
