I did the Fairy Cave tour. It was a wonderful cave with lots of decorations. You have to do a bit of stooping to get through some parts, but it is well worth it! There were not a lot of tourists around, so you could enjoy the reserve in serenity. The reserve area was lovely as well. I did the... More

10/10 for this tour, we did birth the royal and fairy cave tours. The tour guide was very informative and the caves are absolutely beautiful. There are many steps and some tight areas but all very safe. The park grounds around the caves are well kept and very green. Highly recommend this tour

Our family enjoyed the tour of the Buchan Caves. Such an amazing experience to get up close and personal with the stalagmites, stalactites and other amazing formations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging with the whole group. Our pre-schooler and toddler both loved the tour and especially loved the adventure of exploring the tracks and stairs. The grounds were... More

Very informative guided tour through the fairy cave. Was great to be allowed to take photoes in the caves as others I have been to don't allow you to. The surrounding reserve is well kept great to pull in and have a picnic

A beautiful well kept park with excellent grounds for camping or just site seeing. Incredibly neat and the Parks Dept have obviously invested a lot of time and effort into making this one of East Gippsland's premier attractions. I hadn't been back there for some 20 years and it was a little disappointing to not see the pool fed by... More

My husband & I stayed here in our campervan 6 years ago. We paid just $22 per night back then for a powered site. We did a tour of the Royal Cave that time and we considered it one of the nicest caves we'd ever seen. The campground is a lovely bush setting and so peaceful. There are several walks... More

I remember going to Buchan Caves as a child but i didnt remember how fantastic it is. i recently took my husband and two children to the caves. The staff there were great and during the tour my son was encouraged to ask questions and was answered with respect and in ways that he understood. We had a great time... More

Theres so much to do at Buchan Caves. Its the second time that i have camped there and its great! You're tucked away in the little caves reserve valley surrounded by wildlife, on the banks of springs creek. Campground is decently sized with all amenities provided, even a camp general store. The big draw card though is the caves, i... More

We visited the Buchan Cave Reserve and took the Royal Cave tour with our three small children. All the staff at the Reserve were friendly, and our tour guide was knowledgable and included the children as much as possible. After the cave tour we had some lunch and the children enjoyed the play equipment. The facilities at the reserve are... More

We toured both the Royal and Fairy caves. The caves are very interesting and the guide was quite knowledgeable about caves.
