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

These cave are a must see. Absolutely spectacular formations with added bonus of cave spiders and native shrimp and of course the glow worms.The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The day we went the tour was booked out and they put on an extra one for our group. The fern glade walk was a delight.

These are lovely caves with all the usuals plus a few extra's, the glow worms were a special treat and the reason we went, there was also a fossilised sea sponge that was pretty cool. We took the 10 minute walk from the ticket along the river which was beautiful.

The cave has easy access for younsters and only a little bending for adults. The tour isn't too long compared to others (depending on how many questions you ask) and plenty for the kids to see including glow worms at the end of the tour. Our cave guide Brian (aka Fred) was a local to the area and was very... More
