Last week visited the cave and really enjoyed the trip and the adventure. We did not have a lot of trouble going the track, although unfit persons might have some problems. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The first part before reaching the caves leads up through a sheep paddock. The trip through the cave is a natural wonder as not the easiest way to go crawling sometimes through the water and squeezing between rocks, worth the effort when entering the higher part. All the way was surrounded by stalagmites and stalagtites and lots of glowworms.
We did not visit the cafe, but drove down direction Hamilton via the gravel coast road and saw the sunset; a must when visiting this area.
