I was not expecting this. The attraction is very low key. The caves are much smaller that those at Jenolan so this offers a different experience. The intimacy and the proximity of the cave make it very spectacular. The stalactites are well protected - in some parts with chicken wire as you do walk very close to them. An excellent... More

We selected to do the double tour and see both caves (circa $80 for a family of five). As we were staying at the park we split the tours to separate days. Just be aware that the tours leave on time - we were late for one of our tours by five minutes. We had to rebook (and pay again)... More

Toured both the Fairy and the Royal Caves. Cost was $20.90 for one cave or $31.20 for the two. Both very different but equally as amazing and beautiful. Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the visit if you are in Buchan.

We visited the caves with our three young children that are all under 5 and had a great time. We only went on one of the cave tours, Fairy Cave, it took 45min and was an easy walk for the whole family. There is a nice playground and picnic area to enjoy outside the caves as well.

The Caves where so worth the visit and our tour guide was great, Greg was so patient and had so much information about everything you wanted to know and fielded questions willingly. This was a highlight of our trip

Visited both the Royal and Fairy Caves and was amazed at how beautiful mother nature can produce something. Tour guides were very informative, reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this activity to others!

Got there just in time for one of the cave tours- check times before coming or you could be waiting a while. We did the Fairy Cave tour- I thought it was amazing. Lots of different formations to see -stalagmites stalagtites etc. I feel this is the best cave I have seen because you get so close to the formations,... More

We paid to tour the "fairy cave" at Buchanan Caves. Having been on a few cave tours over the years I have say Fairy Cave was very impresiive indeed. This cave has all the formations that can be viewed in any other cave in the world which is unusual. Excellent tour guide that gave a full account of the hisory... More

I returned last month after booking the special wheelchair. If you are under 60kg and can transfer to a chair you will be taken into the smaller cave. I took some video and put it on Youtube if you're interested to watch. Was great to go back and have a good time followed by a great review. Food is a... More
