An informative look at the caves, The ladder into the caves is quite steep but once you're in there there is plenty of lighting & space to move around & have a look. The guide was friendly & happily answered all of our questions. Maybe a little pricey at $45 for a family but we were told we could spend... More

A young but still beautiful set of caves. A bit of a walk up to the entrance and climb down into the show caves but well worth the effort.

The cave system was very pretty.Our guide was enthusiastic and full of anecdotes.It is small compared to others we have visited,but unique in its style of stalagtites. Well worth the stop.

We did the 45 minute ranger guided tour through the caves which was a fun way to see them. There is also a more adventurous tour for those willing to get more dirty in small cave spaces. We also did the short walking trails near the caves as we were told that they are good places to spot echidnas.

We didn't go to the caves, we only did the nature walk. It was pretty and we saw a few species of birds. I was was hoping to see the black cockatoos here but we didn't. We did see a rosella of some kind, a skink and a very cute forest bird of some sort. You can see the original... More

Yet another different experience. A pretty setting & an interesting cave. A Ranger took us on a guided tour of Kelly's Cave which is only a 'youngen' compared to Jenolan Caves but still very pretty & worth a visit. We've noticed all 'our' Rangers have a passion for their field, have personality & enjoy their jobs - thank you.

We had a great time at Kelly Caves with our 3 & 5 year olds. The kids loved it & our guide was amazing explaining the caves to them. It was great to learn some history & knowledge of the island too.

I hadn't really considered going to the caves as we made this trip with our 2 yo son, but while reading different threads about the island when travelling with toddlers, I kept seeing reviews from people saying their toddlers absolutely loved the caves - so we decided to check it out. 3 full weeks have passed since we visited the...
