- Giants Cave and Calgardup Cave
Among many caves in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, Giants and Calgardup are unique: "...Calgardup and Giants caves are not electrically lit. They are self-guided, providing a natural experience of the cave environment. Visitors are equipped with helmets, lamps and information for their very own discovery of of these subterranean wonderlands." Giants Cave (photo right) is a highly recommended learning experience for adherents to constructivist pedagogies - self paced discovery learning, scaffolded throughout its 575 metre length (except for some dodgy passages), no prequisites other than strong enclosed footware and age above 6 years.... not beyond your average comfort zone.
