The entrance is an impressive shaft indicated by trees (at least Strawberry Tree and Holm Oak) on a bare, steep hillside. A 25m pitch ends on boulders into a small chamber from which 3 passages radiate. Both left hand branches quickly choke. The right hand branch continues as stooping or crawling over sand for 100m. Near the end is a blowhole in solid rock, about 10cm diameter for at least 2m. The floor seems to be a boulder which may lead to easier digging once removed, but the site is not paricularly promising. Several possible digs on the southeast side of the passage back towards the entrance draught slightly.
In 1999 "various new bits" were found near the entrance, but none went.
