“Amazing glow worms!”
Review of Marakoopa Cave

We went with the cathedral and glow worms tour. The cave formations do not look very different from other caves but the glow worms were very impressive - definitely worth going if you have not seen this type of cave or glow worms before.

If you already visited Jenolan or Wombeyan caves then this cave is like a baby. The only beautiful thing in this cave is Glow worms. The guide was good and he answered all our questions. Go by 10 min walk from office to the caves and it is really fantastic.

When you are going to this caves don't miss the Liffey falls also. When you travel from Devonport - Sheffield - Caves then don't miss to watch Opium flowers everywhere on the road side and it is illegal to enter into a farm but you can take photo graphs. It is bloom on November and December.

Amazing geological formations and very knowledgeable guide (thanks Alwyn!). Part of the tour also includes seeing a large glow worm colony - won't forget that! Worth the trip. Visit the Marakoopa Cafe afterwards. Run by a nice couple.

Loved the guide and he sang us a song in the darkness to show us the acoustics of the main chamber. Large wet cave with huge chambers and great formations but preferred King Solomon which is a dry cave with more colour, more compact and better formations but the guide wasn't as good. Too political.

Great experience undergound without feeling trapped. Unfortunately the tour of the caves is seperated into different areas whereas previously when I went through them, we went through the entire cave system
