A very interesting cave complex. Just outside of chillagoe town. Great guide Bob . We were there in wet season and in the Donna Cave the Fairy Grotto was one one of the prettiest things I've seen in any cave anywhere.

When you have University, teenagers and primary aged children it is often very difficult to please EVERYONE when you are on holiday. It's even more difficult to find things that will excite and interest all age groups. Chilligoe-Mungana Caves ticked all the boxes. Parents, university aged, late teens, early teens and primary children all had an amazing time. SERVICE Excellent... More

My husband and I made a spur of the moment decision to visit the Chillagoe caves, and were we happy we did. When you arrive in Chillagoe and get tickets for your tour at "The Hob" make sure to read all the information available on the Diorama you will then understand more about the area and the "Caves". We had... More

The day we went there in the late afternoon with outside temp above 35 degrees and as soon as we walked through the caves, we could feel the temp dropped more than 10 degrees. The breeze was so nice and refresh. The amazing trees and rocks were so special that made me speechless. I would definitely come back here and... More

Caves were amazing! There are three that require a ranger guided tour (purchase tickets ahead of time at The Hub) and 3 that you can do on your own as well as hiking trails.

Very beautiful countryside and very interesting cave tour, with lots of information provided by the park ranger. Excellent walkways allowing visitors easy passage through this cave system. Well worth the drive to see this cave.

We visited Chillagoe from Atherton for the day which is doable. When we arrived the only tour going was for Trezkin Cave. The three tour caves are priced the same but vary in tour times with Trezkin the shortest at 45 minutes. We arrived at the cave with quite a crowd and our guide sent us in. Basically he told...

There are 560 caves in the area including 3 that are professionally guided. Our guide was a layback local character though I really enthusiast and very helpful. The caves are well lit with beautiful formations, well set up with new walkways and ladders. Make sure you book the caves in advance tours are at 9.00, 11.00 and 1.30 each day
