Did the basic 1hr tour with a 13yr old and 84yr old.. was a really good experience for all of us. I had checked and expected the tour to be a little easier physically. However wouldn't have missed it for anything and we managed to get through (almost) the whole tour. Thankfully there was an 'easy way out' at the end for mother in law (missing the suspension bridges etc). The organisation and coordination of the tour was faultless and the guide was very thoughtful and considerate of all people in the group. We really appreciated the professionalism (mum was not made to feel a burden). Highly recommend this tour. I have done Jenolan Caves also and found this as good if not better. Again, can't speak highly enough of the guide, he was a well mannered, lovely young man.

Was raining slightly when we visited, but didn't inconvenience the experience. Interesting to see where the water drips down and forms the stalagmites, and stalactites. Great natural attraction not relying on spotlights to provide theatrical content. Bridges and stairs, but mostly flat and even. Very knowledgable tour guide. Finishes off with a tight, dark squeeze out onto a rope swing bridge. Only 'hairy' bit for a claustrophobe, like me.
Over all quite a pleasant experience.

Take a break from driving and take a tour through these caves. Interesting and Educational. Children will love it. Wheel chair friendly. Picnic tables available. There were wallabies and bush turkeys freely roaming around the grounds when we got there. Take insect repellent as you will need it.

Caves were an excellent idea for a quiet wedding.
Food and service excellent.
Rooms very basic and could do with refurbishing.
