Continue on a drive through the deep south on the way to the Hastings Caves. Journey underground with a guide to see the largest dolomite cave open to visitors in Australia. Admire spacious caverns, stalactites, columns, shawls, and stalagmites. 

Head to a nearby swimming pool which is fed by thermal springs which has year-round 28 degrees Celsius water. After a relaxing soak, make your way to Willie Smith’s Apple Shed.
