Gumbuya World Critter Cave

Gumbuya World in the Gippsland region of Victoria was revamped in 2017. Part of the revamp included the Gumbuya Wildlife Park with a nature trail and “Critter Cave”.

  • The cave exhibits large reptiles, frogs, and insect habitat display dioramas
  • The artificial rock cave structure was custom built to meet the specific animals’ husbandry requirements
  • The whole build was 700 sqm of artificial rockwork
  • The artificial rocks were designed to replicate the typical Gippsland highland region rock formations
  • Natureworks can custom design artificial rock caves like this example for displays, exhibits or other purposes
