Very informative guide that took us through and knew the history of the caves. Good that there was only three of us on this tour at the time. Will do the adventure tour next time when I'm go to KI.

Visited the Kelly Caves which has a beautiful cave system - went with another couple and spent an hour underground. 3 main chambers to see - each was stunning. The rangers talk was great and he is obviously passionate about the location. A must see if vising Kangaroo Island. Be prepared for a very steep ladder going down to the... More

What a beautiful cave system! We were lucky enough to go in a small group so all of our questions were answered and we had plenty of time to see the delights of this cave system. Both tour guides were very passionate and it was also very cool to see the seismograph in the little shop.

These caves were incredible! Loved the stallegtites and stallegmites. Saw a 'ballerina leg' (with slipper), a pointing hand and other quite impressive things. Definitely worth visiting.

The Conservation Park is located on the south-western side of Kangaroo Island, about a 20-minute drive away from Flinders Chase National Park. They are generally open daily from 10.15am – 4.30pm except for certain public holidays. Their guided tour usually runs at the quarter of every hour (i.e. 11.15am, 12.15pm, 1.15pm etc.), apart from the first one, which starts at... More

Our family of four took the Kelly Hill Cave Tour and enjoyed it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the cave formations were impressive. I would not put this tour at the top of the must-do tours on Kangaroo Island, but if you have time after Flinders Chase, Seal Bay, and Paul's Place, I would definitely recommend a tour... More

We found the cave tour better than most others as you can stand closer to the formations. The walk to the cave was beautiful. The Guide was very informative and interesting. The price of a family ticket was a bit on the steep side if you are on a budget, however, we recommend this tour if you have never been... More

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.
