“Wow, a great interactive cave experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

We visited the cave in the late afternoon and didn't expect for any tours to be available to us. Tours are run each hour between 9am and 3pm, this is the basic cave tour. If you are wanting a more specialized tour, these are less often and need to be booked. The tour was $28, which I initially thought was a bit pricey. There were 3 of us on the tour and the young guide was informative, professional and knowledgeable. The cave tour was the most interactive that I have been on, and it took about 1.5 hours, with plenty of discussions amongst us about times past, photo ops, etc. At the end of the tour, I felt I had got my money's worth, and the fact that there were so many scheduled tours, I didn't begrudge the entrance fee.
If you are in the area, well worth a visit.

“Make this a place to stop at.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

This is a little gem. Our guide was knowledgable and interesting. She was able to explain the natural history of the caves as well as the european history of them as well. The caves are quite accessable and most people can easily negotiate their way through the cave tour. The formations are not as spectacular as some cave systems in Australia, but this did not make them uninteresting. Well worth the side trip.
