Wellington Caving Group welcomes new members on most trips, however members do have booking and accommodation priority. If you have enjoyed three trips with the club we ask that you join our club.

Please contact the committee with any suggestions, questions, or feedback about trips. We are always looking for people to lead trips, and suggestions for places to visit and revisit.

If you would like to give caving a go, we have some information on getting started and going on your first trip.
