This was rather cool! Okay, the stairs are pretty steep... but it's well worth the climb! It's amazing how many limestones grow inside this cave... they looked amazing! Theres a couple of bats here and there. They showed us how dark it can get by turning off all the lights in the cave. Yep, it was totally dark... couldn't see... More

A pleasant stop at the end of the Wilderness Trail. Had 45 minutes underground learning about how this little gem came to be. Great guide, and fun time.

We spent a bit of time at the Kelly Hill Conservation Park and Caves on Kangaroo Island recently as part of our time on the island. Close to Finders Chase National Park it was a good way to see some caves and take a great tour. There are tours that go deeper but we weren’t doing that today, maybe another... More

We got here quite early before the tour started, so opted to go on the hikes around the place that they recommend while you wait. The hike was nice enough, nothing too special, but you do past the old entrance of the caves, which was a hole in the ground with a ladder...very happy they don't do that anymore. We... More

Squeezed this in on our way back to town after seeing other attractions. I wouldn't consider this a "must see", but definitely nice if you haven't seen caves before. Our tour guide Adam was really informative and was playful and interactive with the younger kids in the group. While we were waiting for our tour to begin, a school group... More

My wife and I happened to be the last customers of the day and so got a private tour! I've been in a few caves before, and these did not disappoint. East to access and easy to exit if you're the 'claustaphobic' type.

Visited for the tour of the caves with my wife. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the caves and the local area. The caves were very impressive and interesting to see. As it's so close to Flinders National Park, its worth stopping over here for an hour.

Worth the stop and look at the caves as very beautiful. We had an excellent tour guide with very informative information about the caves. Great photography opportunities. Went for the 20 minute walk prior to the tour of the caves. The attraction site looked a bit sad as had a storm go through and brought down several big trees which... More

The tour of these caves is covered by the Kangaroo Island Pass, which is really good value for money. Our guide was extremely enthusiastic about the cave and had great knowledge of the history and the area. The caverns are well presented and time allowed for many lovely photos. The entrance is very steep steps which would not be suitable... More
