Trips

Trips and eventsAuckland Speleo Group runs a variety of trips, catering for all abilities from beginners upwards in terms of both general caving and rope skills. From almost dry walk-through caves to challenging vertical systems with waterfalls and rope descents, we visit all the caves that New Zealand has to offer.

It is important that you contact the trip leader as early as possible to register your interest and guarantee yourself a place. Some trips have restricted numbers of participants and trips will only go ahead if there are sufficient numbers. The club welcomes new members and takes an interest in training and developing their caving skills.

Our trips calendar is regularly updated and club members can also join our active email discussion group.

Into the Underworld Exhibition 2017

December 9 - 24

Beneath the banality of Auckland’s sprawling suburbia, there lies an ancient subterranean world.

Into the Underworld is an art-science collaboration between digital artist Chirag Jindal and speleologist Peter Crossley, and follows two years of advanced 3D scanning research into the lava caves under the suburbs of Mount Albert, Three Kings, Mount Eden, Mangere and One Tree Hill.

For three weeks only in December, the caves will be presented in an exhibition of immersive panoramic prints, moving images and 3D-printed models, revealing the sublime and uncanny narrative of the city’s volcanic underground.

The exhibition will also feature screenings of Meet Peter, a 2017 fresh shorts documentary by filmmaker Gemma Duncan on Peter and his life documenting over 200 caves across the city. Through artful cinematography, the film accounts the derelict state of these forgotten sites, but frames them within the beauty of their fossilised lava flows.

When:

Saturday 9 December 2017, 12.00pm – Sunday 24 December 2017, 9.00pm

 

Exhibition open from 12pm until late (until 9pm weekdays, until midnight from 21-23 Dec)

Cost: Free
