“Explore this spectacular underwater world.”
Piccaninnie Ponds - which is recognised as a wetland of international importance – has crystal clear waters which have been slowly filtering through the limestone and forming the Pond’s features over thousands of years.
The water, rising to the surface under pressure has eroded a weakness in the limestone to form The Chasm. This same process has formed the large underwater cavern known as The Cathedral creating its majestic white walls of sculptured and scalloped limestone.
You can snorkel across the top of The Chasm and peer down into the dark depths below or if you’re a diver, you can dive down into the large underwater cavern known as The Cathedral.
On land, take a walk along the beach and see the freshwater springs bubbling up onto the sand. There is also a walking trail through coastal wattle and beard heath to the ponds outlet.
On the way, view the southern ocean and the lower south east marine park. The walk then leads inland via boardwalks into silky tea-tree and cutting grass to a lookout where views of the wetland and bamboo reed and bulrush can be seen.
