Summary of site:

Island Pot is one of the main sink holes of the Sruh Croppa River and was originally filled with stream debris. In 1971 it was cleared to reveal a narrow hole with a 5m drop into a small chamber with three impenetrable inlet passages. A major storm has since reinterred the hole beneath more boulders.
