Wellington Caves. Wellington

These caves offer a number of exciting filmmaking possibilities. The large cave is easily accessible via stairs and is supplied with 240V power. All caves are not open to public, although they are suitable for filming. The Adjoining caves are a disused phosphate mine with tunnels through hard rock and timbered shafts, which also has 240V power throughout and is a very good location.

Timbered in the traditional way in parts and hard rock in other parts. Has power supply and power points throughout. Rail track and trolley available as props or for tracking shots. At end of shaft is series of timber ladders to surface. This ‘mine’ is an ideal  filming location. Being purpose built, it overcomes the OHS and Mining Act restrictions normally applying to current or disused mines.
