We took our 2 kids aged 5 and 7 to see the caves and they loved them just as much as my partner and I. The guides were fantastic also. If you going to be down that way we would recommend checking them out.

“Amazing” Beautiful “Spectacular” Wow Well worth a visit. Both caves 500metres long. 200 steps in Fairy Cave and 150 steps in the Royal Cave. Walkways low in places but fairly easy walking. Take a camera.
