The Australian Speleological Federation (ASF), registered by the Australian Department of the Environment and Energy, has the primary objective of protecting the cave and karst environment of Australia.

The ASF is also the national body that represents the interests of 24 caving clubs, comprising over 800 members throughout Australia, and represents Australia on the International Union of Speleology.

The ASF holds biennial conferences, and the 31st Conference – The Darkness Beneath: Caving Tasmania will be held on 30 December 2018 – 4 January 2019 at Devonport, Tasmania.
