short tour, but price reflected this. there were only 3 of us in the group and that was a benefit. the cave system was explained in depth and the 'cave darkness' with musical accompaniment was lovely. the walk out through the zigzag cave was my highlight but very tight!

We took the two hour geo-tour here with a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide "DJ" who after a very interesting presentation on the various fossils and formations we would see, took us into the caves for a guided tour of its beauty and treasures. The acoustics in the cathedral caves were incredible and it must be a fabulous place to... More

What a great natural attraction. We did the cathedral tour on our way into Rocky and it was great. This tour is suitable for all ages and is very interesting. The cathedral cave is beautiful and you can see why people get married here. The exit involved an 8m walk through a very small twisting section before you could run... More

We decided to stop at the caves on the way to Rockhampton . Great decision. We joined the Cathedral Cave tour. Our guide was enthusiastic and full of information. The cave was better than we were expecting and the hour tour passed far too quickly.

A well organised tour where we benifited from having only 4 people in the group. Jay our escort through this underground labyrinth was both knowledgeable and witty he imparted as much information as we could assimilate. The highlight of the tour was listening to Amazing Grace in the "cathedral Room" . Walking shoes/trainers recommended thongs/flip flops could be dodgy.

Definitely the highlight of the tourist attractions around Rocky. I went on a 2 hour geo- tour of the caves which included a guided walking through the caves with a helmet with a torch. The guides were knowledgeable about the cave systems and I definitely learned a lot from my visit.

Very good tour with excellent commentary. Guide was very knowledgeable and very generous with her time (we went well over the allocated one hour). Would love to go back for one of their classical music events

It is worth seeing the caves, but it should not take so long to do it. It took an hour when a half hour would have been more than plenty. They tell heaps of stories that are kind of sort of relative. Really it just felt that the guide was giving these canned stories to push it to an hour.... More

Well worth the price, we had a wonderful tour just for the two of us. Our guide was very interesting and friendly, and delved into the history with deep knowledge. The caves were wonderful, so many different colours, surfaces and shapes. To top it off, fat scones and coffee afterwards! ! Highly recommended ☺

the caves are quite nice, and the atmosphere is also good. The guides are good and knowledgable, but they charge 30 dollars entrance which I think is a bit too expensive for a 2 hours tour. Anyway, if money is not an issue for you definitely visit.
