Today we went to the Capricorn Caves near Rockhampton. Our tour guide’s name was DJ. I saw at least 9 bats.
The caves were great, even in really wet weather. DJ told us that Santa sometimes came at Christmas time and one time he decided to go abseiling and hid beard got stuck in the abseiling kit and they had to cut his whole beard off just to get him out!
There was also a cathedral cave where they had weddings and underground opera. There were two rows of chairs with an aisle in the middle and a stage at the end of the aisle. DJ played us some music so we could hear how beautiful it sounded in the cave.
In another cave there was a hole called the summer solstice hole. If you stand under the hole at lunch time on the summer solstice the sun comes straight through and reflects the colour of your clothes all around the cave. Pink if you had pink on like I did today. But if you had white on it would the colour of your undies!
So all I can say is you should go to these caves.
Bye for now,
