The tour guides are very informative and help put you at ease when under ground in confined areas. Lighting was good and was surprisingly... More

Gorgeous cave and very rewarding. Every bits and pieces of limestone rocks or fossils were well preserved and maintained and very knowledgeable tour guide. Visited with my 3 years old son and wife, everyone enjoyed the tours. Highly recommended!!!

It was an amazing experience to see the limestone inside these caves. It would have been better if the phase of the sight seeing is a bit slower so you can really have a good look at the stones and not just glance. The tour guide who took us haven't done it in years but she was humble enough to... More

Not too far off the beaten track and a very nice site. It looked as if it would be an ideal place to camp as the facilities looked good. The caves are good examples of their kind and not too extensive. The tour guide is very entertaining and informative. While there are some steps and low sections, it is quite... More

This place is a must see. It really is beautiful. I've been a few times and only came to show the kids the caves. They were really impressed. The guides are very knowledgeable and take the time to entertain the kids with a few fairy stories. The only minor issue is if you are doing the tour of both caves,... More

The caves themselves are in fact quite spectacular...if you can spend the time taking it all in and are not rushed ahead because another group may be coming along behind you (and they can't "play through"). There are some spectacular pieces here, and the subterranean pools are a delight, but go when it isn't a tourist period to get the... More

We had a lovely time at the Buchan Caves on the Anzac weekend. The grounds were simply picturesque ,in full Autumn bloom ,with tourists and campsites everywhere. The setting was just wonderful . We did have trouble deciding which tour to take as there were several choices. We really enjoyed the Royal Cave . We found the tour highly interesting... More
