A nice cave – well maintained and presented but not very special. We’ve seen much bigger ones with a lot more interesting structures and unique formations elsewhere – in China, Malaysia as well as New Zealand. We did this cave because it was raining. At some point, the rain actually turned into hail. So, not a bad idea to go... More

This was great and out guild was excellent. As caves go these would have to be one of the easiest ones to walk thru so all can enjoy.

We had a very friendly and unique tour guide take us on our cave tour, he also let us explore like they did in the times with candles. Its an easy walk and great for the kids too. Just be mindful that there are about 50 deep steps at the start and end.

If you're interested in geological formations, this is the stop for you. The caves are close to the main highway to Flinders Chase National Park and if you've purchased a yearly park pass, you can get into this attraction for free. After a brief walk up the hill, you descend into the caves with a guide who will explain to... More

These caves are interesting, even if they are modest in size. On a hot day, this is a perfect activity. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and the tours are frequent throughout the day (every 45 minutes or so). The entrance fee is modest and walking around the park is pleasant.

We liked the Kelly Hill caves. Had a very strange tour guide which to his credit was very passionate about exploring (perhaps a little too passionate) however the Aussie accent was sometimes a little difficult hard to understand at times

Take the Kelly Hill to Hanson Bay hike for a good medium/strenuous hike. The hike goes through various terrain, forests, open plains and along the coast. Great for photos.

If you want to cram most of the experiences of southern Australia into one trip then KI might be the one for you. It's quite expensive, as nearly everything, including you and your transport, has to be ferried from the mainland. You have to pay entry for every "attraction" and to be guaranteed the wildlife experience I would recommend Pauls... More
