Looking for something to do on a rainy day in Mount Gambier I saw the name on the map so off we went to the caves. It was well worth it. The Guide was knowledgable and the cave holds many unique and interesting features. If you like geology, geography or even history you'll get something out of this. Note there... More

We stayed in the national park and visited the caves while there. The guide we had was lovely and the caves were breathtakingly beautiful

Great cave system, faultless. Amazing walk around the area (above and below ground) and magical experience in the cave.

Quite a drive out to the caves but well worth the effort. We had the tour guide to ourselves so maybe got a bit of an extended talk but she was awesome and certainly knew her subject. Spectacular site and very interesting.

WOW After walking down 68 steps you are in an awesome space. There are plenty of stelamites and stelatites to look at in all different shapes and sizes as well as colours. The tour was very informative and well worth the time.

We took our 6 and 3 year olds to see this. I was also 6 months pregnant and the cave was easy going and not strenuous. Easy steps down (68) with a handrail. The formations are gorgeous and worth seeing. My 6 year old was enthralled but my 3 year old got bored pretty quickly. The young tour guide spoke... More

Being so close to Mt Gambier where we were staying I took the wife for a look. My folks used to bring us here as kids and now it is my duty to show my wife all the things my father showed us. If you want to do a lot of sightseeing in a day and include some caves then... More

during the tour there was just me and my 2 friends- we all get the same impresion - young tour guide was weary and was talking like automat. Shame- because it look like we were close age - instead making tour more interesting, friendly in the and we felt like 'done & dusted'. Small Cave but worth to see!

Whilst touring the Great Ocean Road, it worth taking time out and making a detour to visit these wonderful caves located in the middle of Lower Glenelg National Park. These caves are often referred as 'the jewel in the crown' of the National Park. There are a number of steps down to the cave floor level, and may be a... More
