“Phenomenal tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

I'm not normally interested in geology, but my family and I thought the Kelly Hill Caves would be interesting. We had a phenomenal tour guide (Katrina) who had such enthusiasm and passion for her job that we were excited to hear about how the caves were formed and some of the animals, especially megafauna, that lived in the area. This is a really fun excursion on Kangaroo Island and I highly recommend it. Katrina gave one of the best tours I've had in a national park. I think you'd need to be somewhat fit in order to get to and through the caves, but the walk is not difficult.

Brilliant 3-hr hike from Kelly Caves to Hanson Bay. Simply stunning. Loads of wildlife, changing scenery, quiet, peaceful, serene. We felt like explorers discovering new land!

“Great tour and guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My family and I had a private tour and really loved this tour as the guide was very informative and was passionate about caving which i think added to the tour, it was also well worth the money as we spent well over an hour in the caves. I would definitely do this tour again if going back to kangaroo island.

“Go caving at Kelly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Great caves and wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgable staff really lifted the experience. The walk around the caves helps put them into perspective and understand how lucky they were to find them during the 1920's.
