If you go to this area, this is a must. It is breathtaking beautiful amazing surreal. Kids loved it. Boat ride is fun. No cameras allowed apparently yet people sneaked them in. Not much facilities around - toilets not up to much etc. didn't try cafe so can't comment. We decided to eat elsewhere.

Though it isn't very big, the Grotto itself was beautiful. It is divided into the Upper and Lower Grotto. We took a short cable car ride to the upper grotto and then a train to the lower grotto where we took a boat ride! Both the upper and lower parts felt cool and really beautiful as it was lit up...

These caves were well worth the visit, some fantastic formations to view, sadly no cameras were allowed to record the amazing work created by mother nature.

The grotto is nice and beautiful. The gardens outside is also good. They should allow people though to take photos inside.
