Mole Creek Caves 岩洞及螢火蟲

Mole Creek Caves

Mole Creek Caves其實由幾個巨型岩洞穴組成,而我們參觀的正是Marakoopa Cave的Great Cathedral and Glow-worms Tour。這個Mole Creek Cave其實就是一個水簾洞,是一個很壯觀的自然景像。

我們參加了由Launceston朗塞斯頓出發的Mole Creek Caves & Gourmet Food一天團(早上9時30至下午4時),第一站會先到Mole Creek Caves,由酒店pick up出發,車程約1小時。這個1-day tour已包Mole Creek Cave場費(約AUD 19),抵達後導遊替我們購票,時間剛剛好出發,每團約有20人,應該有人數限制,有人遲了到埗,都只可以參加下一個團。

導賞團導遊是一個老伯伯,應該有70多歲,但仍然健步如飛,中氣十足。Mole Creek Cave內的溫度很低,約6-7度左右,要著足夠的衣服。導遊叮囑大家不要隨便在洞內拍照,要到指定的位置,在導遊的指示下才可以拍照,主要是避免燈光影響到洞內的小生物 - 螢火蟲。

進入Mole Creek Cave的入口很窄,洞頂很底,要彎著身行,洞內有很微弱的燈光,但如果將燈光關掉,就會完全漆黑一片。導遊帶著我們上上落落,到達不同位置後,就會亮起較光的射燈,然後講解洞穴內不同現象的形成過程,大概都是長年累月水的流動,再配合crystallization而導致洞穴內的石頭變得奇形怪狀,有些從洞頂一支支尖銳的垂下,像怪獸的牙齒,有些從洞頂延伸到洞底,像椰樹的樹幹,有些就如蜂巢,有些是一個個半球體,表面如打磨般光滑,有點像棉花糖。

為展現洞內強勁的環迴立體聲,導遊邀請團友唱歌,但當然無人理睬,其實正合他河車,導遊突然男低音上身,唱起歌來,雄亮的聲音在洞內回盪,都幾震撼。

進入Mole Creek Cave最期待的,就是「幸會螢火蟲」。導遊帶領我們到達一個位置,抬頭看已經看到一點點的光,就是螢火蟲了,突然間導遊將洞內的燈全部關掉,洞穴頂的閃閃光就如繁星般多,超級漂亮。螢火蟲的光不是閃動的,而是慢慢變暗再變光。導遊說,螢火蟲是吃蚊的,他們會發光吸引蚊接近,然後捕食,所以螢火蟲越光,即代表牠越肚餓。

除螢火蟲外,Marakoopa Cave內的主角正是上圖這個「Great Cathedral」。

整個Mole Creek Cave導賞團約一小時,出來的時候,Michael已經在等候,準備到下一站Melita Honey Farm了。
