This cave is totally different to what I expected however it is still amazing to see what is underneath the city of Mt Gambier. A popular spot for cave divers, it is interesting hearing some of the history of the area. Since this cave is dry you do not get the pretty formations but it is still interesting to see. I believe it is worth a visit simply to experience something different.

Grab a "melting moment" cookie on the way, YUM!

This was not what I expected - it is a 'dry-cave' and different to other caves I have been in. The guide was excellent and he was very knowledgeable about the history of this cave. Well worth a visit.

it was kind of interesting that there are these big cavities under the city but the above ground part was a lot more attractive than the cave itself. the guide was trying to be funny - pause for laughter - but he wasn't!! his jokes were dumb - pause for effect - and his "facts" uninteresting: and here we have some things found in the cave: a horse shoe, a piece of glass, a tin, another piece of glass. and look there is a cat in the cave! (2 pointy pieces of rock) dragging the "experience" out over 40 torturous minutes. Learn to read your audience and if 3 jokes in a row fail give up and just stick to the facts!! I am 40 not 4!! Make your tickets 6$ instead of $12 which is too much for what it is, and make the tour half shorter. Would not recommend as it is now.

Well worth a visit, we did the tour ($12 pp) and we enjoyed it. Informative guide and intersting to hear about the caves history and what has been found so far.

Cave walk is short in distance but commentary is entertaining. Sadly rather expensive for what you get to see.
