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

A must-see near Mole Creek, Tasmania. The cave tour started with the tour guide pointing out two female and one male cave spiders. Then, we saw very many stalagmites and stalactites. And it culminated with the viewing of the glow worms. Absolutely awesome from beginning to end. The tour takes about one hour. The tour guide was an older man... More

It was a drizzly, misty day when we went to view Marakoopa Cave. We arrived early intending to go to the 10am tour. However on arrival we found that a lot of other people had the same idea. The 10am tour had just sold out before we got there but the office very kindly offered to put on an extra... More

Our tour guide, Aaron, managed to find the perfect balance between informative, safe, exciting and entertaining. This tour was pretty much everything you could hope for with beautiful caves, spectacular glow worms, information to cover questions and entertaining enough to never drag for a moment. If the weather is even part way ok then it is well worth the short... More

Nice little cave with good concretions. The guided visit was very interesting, thanks to Brian. He taught us the basic names of the cave objects and after we had to discover the reason of their nicknames (the cauliflower, the turnip, the white carrot,...)

We've been to quite a few caves in Australia and around the world and while this is not the biggest one, the guide's narrative and way of handling the tour made up for it. The glow worms are very interesting to see at the end and there's a tale that a couple of platypuses are making a home somewhere in... More
