Well worth the money! There are different tours you can do depending on what your interests are and all of them look so great. We chose the cheapest one but it was so great. An hour long tour through naturally formed caves was just stunning and the tour guide was so knowledgable and loved what she does.

We thoroughly enjoyed a night in the cabin snuggled into the bush. It was so quiet and we were entertained by local birdlife and informed by sign posted nature trails around the very well set out camping grounds and cabin sites. The cabins were very clean, well equipped and very comfortable.

Today I went to the Capricorn Caves with my husband and five year old son. Decided to go on the one hour tour and it was really good. The tour guide had a beautiful voice and was able to provide a good amount of history during her talk. She was also really good at ensuring we were safe during the...

Interesting that the caves are in a mountain rather than underground (does that make sense?). The "cathedral" is the highlight - beautiful accoustics when they played "Amazing Grace" in the dark.The " Adventure Tour" squeeIng through tunnels is available for those who like that sort of stuff (skinny gits). Our guide, Charlie, was very informative and came back to save...

This is a good caving experience. The guides are knowledgeable and tell interesting stories that are peppered with cave facts throughout the tour. They are accommodating, understanding and helpful, wherever they can be. Hints: 1) The Catherdral Cave tour runs on the hour, every hour from 10am. Other cave tours need to be booked in advance. 2) Wear enclosed shoes....

We camped on a powered site in a tent right next to a large fire pit. Free fire wood was provided! The amentities were clean however water pressure was a bit low. Pool was refreshing. Free wifi at kiosk was most welcome. Very friendly staff, who were happy to help us out with a refund when thunderstorms were predicted.

We spent two nights here. The cabin was in a quiet spot. The site was almost deserted apart from some families who were there for a wedding in the cave. We were surprised as it was Australia Day and we expected some lively rejoicing - there was none but we didn't mind. There was wildlife literally on our doorstep. Kangaroos...

We stopped here on the unpowered tent camping site for one night before going to the caves the next day. For a Saturday in the middle of the holiday season it was eerily quite. Having said that the facilities are great with plenty of BBQs, kitchens, and washing facilities.
