This project is restoring the environmental values of an important limestone sinkhole known as ‘Tar Drum Cave’, situated near the Camooweal Caves National Park and forming part of the broader Barkly Tableland limestone sinkhole system.


This project will:
  • remove all existing rubbish from the sinkhole and immediate surrounds
  • restore the site’s original environmental values
  • enhance the site as a roost/nesting area for vulnerable ghost bat populations
  • improve sub-artesian water quality.
