Helictite publishes refereed papers, reports, abstracts, reviews and news of the scientific study of caves and their contents, including the history of caves and technical aspects of cave study and exploration.
The journal intended to be wide ranging in scope from the scientific study of caves and their contents, to the history of caves and cave areas and the technical aspects of cave study and exploration. The territory covered is Australasia – Australia, New Zealand, the near Pacific Islands, Papua New Guinea and surrounding areas, Indonesia and Borneo.

The Journal will still be available in printed form by purchase order. Contributions are welcomed by the editors.
