You can only visit the caves by guided tour. when you drive in, first thing to do is stop at the rangers station and book a tour. there are 2 tours for marakoopa cave. one is easy and for all physical capabilities,...

What a great cave tour. Do yourself a favour and walk from the rangers office. Is is a beautiful walk through rainforest. Some people may choose to drive to the cave entrance but it is well worth the walk. Make sure you take a jumper or jacket as it is very cold in the caves even in summer. The Ranger... More

We had a nice tour by an extremly knowledgeable ranger. It is a bit chilly down there, so make sure you have a jumper. Photos are permitted in some parts of the cave.

Brilliant tour through one of Tasmanians natural wonders! An experience not to be missed. Do the beautiful little 15 minute walk from the Rangers hut to the small caves car park .. You won't regret it 👍🏼

We did this tour on the way to Cradle Mountain for a 30th bday. It was quite fun and informative. We did the Glow worms and underwater rivers tour. Kids would love it too! Perfect length, not too long and accessible without 4WD

Have seen more spectacular formation China. If you have seen China caves give this a missed. Unique section with Glow worms. First experience. Was informed that King Solomon's Cave has better formations but no glow worms.

Beautiful formations underground. Pillars, Stalactites and Stalagmites. Good tour guides- you cannot wander off on your own. Just 45 minutes but worth the visit. Tours are at fixed times so need to plan in advance so you dont spend time waiting.

Get there early, the tours book out and groups end up jam packed. We started with a 10am session before the rush. We did the underground rivers and glow worms tour. Intimate tour with knowledgeable and friendly guide. I was dying to touch the crystals but obviously you can't. They're just beautiful! The glow worms are cool too. We also... More

We used the Kellogs cornflakes promotion of buy one and get one free(people), so we only had to pay for two children and got two adults free. Bargain. Only $20.00 We arrived for the 11am viewing but it was sold out so bear that in mind, We went on the catherdral walk, which is great and not to be missed.... More
