Discovered in 1907 the caves are worth visiting. The guide is very informative and gave an extensive look into the history of the Caves, it's discoverer Frank Moore and the millions of years they have been forming

Well organised access to two separate and equally impressive caves. The caves offer a mix of narrower passages and larger chambers with a number of interesting geological features. Competent guides lead the 45min excursions, friendly and willing to answer any questions not covered by their...More
