I was looking for somewhere to take my 6 year old granddaughter. This was a great experience she loved every minute. She mainly wanted to see the glow worms but loved the pretty formations & crystals in the rocks too. Our guide was great with all the kids on the tour as well as us oldies. I did struggle towards...

Make sure you take a warm jumper as its 9 degrees Celsius inside the cave. Tickets are available at the office near the carpark, as a guided tour is the only option for visiting the caves. From the ticket office to the cave entrance is a short walk (10-15 minute) along a bush track - its beautiful. The track runs... More

We were staying nearby for a couple of days and this was one of the highlights. The cave has recently re-opened after some flooding last year. The guide was lovely and kept everybody interested. We parked at the ticket office and did the 10 minute walk from there to the caves.

If you are in the area it's well worth a visit. The caves are stunning and we had a really informative guide who obviously enjoyed his work. Amazing.

Highly recommend allowing time to do the 10 minute walk from the ticket office to the cave entrance, such beautiful scenery of ferns and trees beside a stream, one of the most scenic walks we have come across. For us, this was the highlight of this attraction. Quite a lot of stairs inside the cave, and the glow worms were... More

Marakoopa Cave is not a large network, if you have visited caves in France, for example, but the glow worms are a real hit with kids. The tour is not overly long (in fact ours was a bit rushed due to another group coming in - our start seemed a bit slow) which is good for children. Some lovely formations... More

Visited the cave this morning and had a great time. We left our car at the parks carpark and did the 10 min walk to the cave entrance. A great walk and we even saw a Tiger snake, which we waited for as it meandered across the path. The tour was great, our guide 'Bryan' was informative, but let you... More

We went to cathedral cave and it's very beautiful!!! Really enjoy the walk and the guide is wonderful. Very well inform and provide us a lot of information. It's cold in the cave and require a bit climbing. But it's very beautiful and will forget about the steps.

The caves reopened on 19th Dec after mths of renovation following floods in June. It was an amazing experience seeing & learning about the geological formations and the glow worms, of course!

Originally had planned on visiting Marakoopa caves but they were closed due to flood damage. Visited the nearby King Solomon's caves instead and were glad we did. The cave has some amazing and unique formations, and we had a great guide. All of the National parks staff were very friendly and even gave a few tips on walks and other... More
