Kelly Hill Caves were included in a pass we purchased which gave us entry to some of the main attractions on the Island. The park is beautiful, lots of undercover eating areas and well maintained bathrooms. Cute little shop which had souvenirs and drinks. The walk to the cave entrance is a slight incline and is about 200m long. Once... More

Worth visiting for the guided tour of the caves. Very interesting history of formation of the caves and insight into local conservation area. Guides very friendly and informative. The caves have not been overdeveloped and the tour is not rushed.

If you like caves, then I would recommend this tour. Amazing formations. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. I think it would be a good thing to do on a family holiday with kids. I've done a few similar cave tours now, so don't think I would rush to do another one! I did enjoy the... More

Steep stairs to enter and exit this cave, which was daunting for someone unfit and with a crook knee, however, the guide was happy to take his time and not rush, which made for a very good experience. The caves are very good and our guide, Nick, was very passionate and imparted lots of info and answered all questions. Was... More

The Show Cave Tour was very interesting and our guide Katrina was passionate and knowledgeable about the cave and the surrounding area. She answered all sorts of questions and really engaged the group in the talk. It is worth taking one of the longer walks to the cave as you get to see the old cave entrance which is a... More

We did get very bored on this tour, if it was a self guided cave tour (where we have been to some other ones) it would have taken 15-20mins and we would have liked it just as much, instead we paid $18 for a tour guide for 45mins and the group was around 40 people so it took ages to... More

Have visited years ago, but this time was so much more enjoyable as our guide passed on such detailed information that it was like a totally new experience. We took the 20 minute walk up to the caves which was great amongst the wildflowers, birds and goannas sighted along the way. Steep stairs down to the caves, but stunning upon... More

cave has very steep entrance steps and to be honest not much else going for it. Very small with no outstanding features. Guide was enthusiastic but very little information imparted.

The stairs are quite steep leading into the cave - as you would expect - but the descent (and eventual climb out) is well worth the effort. The guides are very knowledgable and obviously have a passion for these caves which is wonderful. Children will really enjoy seeing all the structures and the cost was very reasonable.
