The first time we visited this magic place was back in the 1980's. Our guide was very informative and took us to see a hole in the wall which had been made to allow the resident bats to vacate, so that it was visitor friendly....More

For a family with young children who had never been in a cave before, this was ideal. The tour doesn't last too long to make them bored but is long enough to keep the excitement high. The tour guide we had, Brittany, was lovely. She...More

These caves are well worth a visit. You cross over the border to a different time zone from Mt Gambier, going 1/2 hr forward in time. There is a large park with tables to sit at if you fancy having a picnic before or after...More

Publicly these are described as the 'Jewel in the Crown', of this region, I'm really struggling to identify that moniker. Although okay, they are nothing outstanding in my opinion. We have past experience visiting caves in Victoria, NSW, Tasmania, Spain & Gibraltar, and were expecting...More

Entering the cave there are 68 steps down, and you return the same way. But the formations are lovely. It is only 150 metres long as it is blocked by a cave in at the other end. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Because we travelled...More

Fascinating to visit. Our tour guide Brendan was very interesting and gave us a great informative tour about the history of the cave and how it was formed. Can then do lovey walks around the area. Definitely worth the drive.

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.
