Recently visited the caves. They themself were stunning. The tour itself was a little boring the guide didn't have much enthusiasm during the tour..

Even though Thought there was a large group going through the cave it was still a great experience. The caves are amazing! The tour guide was awesome! Can't remember his name.

If you are in the Mount Gambier area, these caves (located just over the border in Victoria & on the Glenelg River) are a "must see" ... simply amazing & beautiful. The guided 45 minute tour of the cave is very informative & certainly worth...More

Yes. It is sealed all the way. We were towing a caravan and were on bitumen all the time. There is a large sealed carpark at the caves.
