We prebooked our site before we arrived. We thought it was abit expensive for a non powered site. When we got there we were the only campers and there was a family staying in a cabin. There was quite a few day visitors. We decided to go on a cave tour which cost us an extra $22 each. Which was... More

We were shown through the Royal Cave by Lex who was an engaging and informative guide. The cave itself was amazing and an easy trek with cement paths, handrails and steps in the steeper parts. Awesome lighting is turned on at each stop to allow you to really see things in detail. I'm super keen to head to Melbourne now... More

We visited on a wet day, but it was still very beautiful. The grounds were immaculate and there were so many kangaroos for the kids to spot while we were walking around. The cave tours were very interesting and also stunning to look at. The tour guides were very friendly and happy to answer and listen to my children's questions... More

Spent the day here. Went through both the caves and a treat for the kids was the swim in the pool on such a hot day. The pool was extremely fresh. Suggest taking a nice picnic lunch many great places to curl up under a tree to relax and eat.

We decided to tour the Royal cave.There are 2 caves to choose from, but due to the weather recently the fairy cave was closed. That was fine as we found the tour to be quite amazing. 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
