Buchan Caves Stairclimber

The electric Stairclimber, provided by the Buchan Caves Reserve, allows children and light adults (up to 60kg) with mobility limitations access to one of the most spectacular viewing areas of Fairy Cave, which would normally be inaccessible due to the many steps and narrow passageways.

To use the Stairclimber, visitors who use wheelchairs are required to transfer from their personal wheelchair into the Stairclimber. The Stairclimber is operated by an experienced cave guide who will take the visitor down into Fairy Cave.

Use of the Stairclimber is free, however a cave tour fee still applies.
