Kelly Hill cave walk in group with guide every half an hour or so. Very short distance. But beautiful innside with stalagmites etc. Good guiding, explains all. You can hold pieces of rocks, heavy. Guide spends time asking what the forms look like.

This was an amazing tour into the caves within this hill. The guide Annie was wonderful and really enjoyed taking us on the tour and answered the many questions from the children. I recommend this to all ages, to see how awesome nature can be.

An adventurous teenager searching for a thrill certainly got his fair share in the adventure cave tour. 'Best adventure cave tour ever!' He said. Absolutely filthy, sweaty and totally exhausted after 2+ hours of sliding and crawling through the wild caves with Nick (tour guide). They provided helmets and torches. Exceptional local knowledge of the caves, history and geology. The... More

Fabulous!! We did the showcave tour. Our kids (10, 7 and 4) really enjoyed this adventure as did I. Our guide (Dave) was excellent. The stairs as you enter into and exit the cave are very steep and if you are 48 and carrying your 4 year old they are exhausting. Well worth the effort.

Great tour. Steep steps, but so worth it. Lovely & cool on a hot day! Once you start looking around, it will be amazing what shapes & objects you can see in the displays. Informative & a top spot to visit.

The Kelly Hill Caves are unique, but they do not compare to the likes of Jenolan Caves in NSW. The guide was informative and interesting. For his first tour, our tour guide did an excellent job and got applause from the group. Well done mate. The bush setting is fantastic and there is plenty of wildlife to see on the... More

I have never seen anything like these caves before. Also, the tour guide offered more than just fun anecdotes about the cave; he explained the geology, composition and history of the caves in detail. My husband and I couldn't stop raving about this tour.

For cave lovers, or first timers, this is a lovely little experience. Not a lot of walking or climbing and suitable for young as well as able bodied mature aged. No a long tour, but an interesting one!

We visited Kelly Hill Caves with my husband, daughter, son in law and our 2 grandsons in December 2015. We found the caves very interesting although the guide seemed a bit ho hum with the tour that we went on, but they have different guides, so maybe we were unlucky. It is really beautiful down in the cave and the... More

I definitely recommend that you take the 45-minute tour. It is very interesting to know how mother nature created these caves.
