Mount Etna Caves National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
An important park near Rockhampton the Mt Etna Caves are home to a huge colony of Bent Wing Bats approximately 400,000 in total. The area is littered with over 100 limestone caves, many with bat colonies in them.

The Bat cleft is a large split in the rock where the bats fly out at dusk on the warm air currents to forage for food. A torrent of bats explodes from the cleft at dusk to completely smother the light as they all try to leave at once. Tours are available the location is somewhat isolated and it is recommended only for reasonably fit adults.

Caving is permitted in some of the caves please apply for a permit before entering any of the caves. Camping is not permitted.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
