We did the Cathedral Tour and really enjoyed it. Judy was a very knowledgeable guide and easy to listen to. The tour gave us a look at a lot of different parts of the cave without being too long for the kids.

We took our four young children along and loved this! The kids thought it was amazing to see the caves and especially loved the end where they got to go through a tight, winding cave and the wobble bridges. So much fun! The cathedral experience...More

Capricorn cave is a good size cave and it is right on Bruce Highway. This cave is not good as great as SA Limestone Coast caves and WA south west caves but it is unique in its own terms.

Thank you arun_tabing for writing a review! Each cave is unique in its formation, that's part of the beauty of a cave, each system is so unique!

Enthusiastic guide really made the most of our walk through these fascinating dry caves. Cathedrals ( I won’t spoil the surprise) bats, and squeeze passages and suspension bridges all brought interest, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
