We did the Cathedral & glow worm tour, with a 2yo & 8yo in tow. It was fantastic. There were a few sets of steep stairs, but they weren't to hard to navigate for the kids, but you definately need to be somewhat fit. The guide had great knowledge of the caves & a good sense of humour.

Buy your ticket at the visitor centre. If you have time, leave your car there and take the Ferny creek walk to the caves entrance. There are some low passages and steps and steep walks in the cave. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable, and clearly passionate about caves. Our tour was interesting and entertaining, we really enjoyed it. Highly... More

Great tour of the caves. Was very informative about how the cave was created & the structures within. We also learned about the history of the cave's discovery & got to see the Glow Worms as well.

We visited this cave and loved it. The guide even treated us to an Irish folk-song in the Cathedral Cave which was very special indeed. Amazing to hear how the cave was formed ... well worth the visit.

I did both of the tours in the Marakoopa Cave. Both were worth while! Take good shoes with you, it's a little wet at first and a bit of ducking and weaving and there's quite a stair climb in the Great Cathedral. I'd do these tours all over again!

We did the Cathedral and glow-worm tour in the Marakoopa cave. A must do in Mole Creek. The other tour option for the Marakoopa cave is the Underground river and glow-worm tour. Tickets are around $19 for adults and the tours alternate hourly starting at 10. Temperature in the cave is 9 degrees all year round so it's great to... More

Our party of 5 teens and 6 adults visited the caves recently and really enjoyed the experience. Our tour guide, Aaron, had a wealth of knowledge but also shared that knowledge in a way that wasn't at all boring (even the teens were riveted and asked many questions). It was a freezing wet Tassie day but that didn't dampen our... More
