“Must Visit This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Its about 1 hour drive (80Km) from cairns township to this Atherton Township. Friendly staff of the cave. A lot of souvenir of crystal, opal and all sort of stone on the shop. You have to pay bit to enter the Museum cave but it worthed. In the museum you can see the big crystal stone like in the picture.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

An interesting outing for the children. The walk in the mine is a good experience and the shop has some lovely gifts. Our daughter bought her own geode and split it in half. It was a great day out for our family

“What an interesting place...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

An amazing collection of stones, minerals, and semi-precious gems. It's a bit pricy to go into the 'Crystal Cave' especially for a family but quite a unique experience.

“Crystal crap caves”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012 via mobile

What a joke this place was. Don't get conned in going to this place. The caves are fake polystyrene and this place is a fire hazard. What a rip off!
