Informative tour well worth doing. Family friendly. Steep staircase to enter so anyone with mobility issues would be an issue. Tour guides are well informed and are happy to answer questions.

We love visiting caves, so enjoyed the natural phenomena. Our guide was obviously 'over it', complaining the best part of the time (no change in the till, so many tours, she's the only one there,etc), except when going through her well rehearsed spiel.

This was a very interesting trip. I thought the tour guide (young woman) can't recall her name was very friendly, energetic and informative. She really made the trip despite being run off her feet as they were understaffed and she was running the operation solo....More

Good, short, informative guided tour through an unusual dry cave environment - no animal or plants but many stalactite formations that are not growing at present. Very different from other Aussie cave systems e.g. Jenolan and Cutta Cutta. Also recommend looking at landscape features and...More

If you buy the national parks pass, the caves are one of the tours included in the price. You can buy tickets just for the caves, but the pass is an economical way of doing it and all components of the pass are worth seeing....More
