While in Thailand on an official visit, Minister Dutton and members of the Australian delegation went to the site of the cave on Friday. The Thai government is keen to turn the cave complex into a tourist attraction. Still inside the cave many signs of the successful rescue remain, including equipment such as wires and pipes.

The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has landscaped the area around the cave to accommodate tourists during the 46th Chiang Rai Games to be held November 18-23.
