Easy, relaxing tour
The caves are a easy activity. It’s only a hour following a short 20min ish drive from Katherine.
The guides are very knowledgeable and cover a lot. The caves are warm and not cold like other caves around Australia so DON’T wear layers. Just check your times because there is nothing too do to kill time if you arrive too early.

Interesting caves and good history knowledge by guide.
Jul. 2021 • Couples
Caves were interesting and Tour Guide was friendly and had a comfortable way to his delivery of the after knowledge of caves history and internal features.
Tour was accessible to most people, but does involve some steep stairs and tight areas.

Good tour guide makes this worth doing.
If you have been to other caves then these are going to be similar to them. It was the local knowledge shared on the tour that made it worth while.

You would never know there were caves here unless you went on the tour and the stories the guide told us enhanced the experience, so for the minimal fee was worth every penny.

Must See!
Absolutely worth the trip. Our tour guide was Jamie and he was brilliant. Absolute pillar of knowledge and good sense of humour.
The caves were just stunning, thousands of years of beauty and gorgeous formations to be appreciated. The team at Nitmiluk Tours take such pride and care at preserving this natural beauty. 10/10 recommend!

AMAZING STRUCTURE UNDER THE GROUND
Sep. 2019
Was nice and fantastic. However, could've been longer walking tracks inside.
Cave structure is amazing and good opportunity for some nice pictures.

Took a trip out to Cutta Cutta Caves as we had heard the one hour tour was well worth it. We weren’t disappointed. Paul, our tour guide, was very good and the information supplied and the tour of the caves themselves a great experience. Amazing to see this underground system. After visiting the caves we then took the 650m loop walk back to the car park where you can view some of the limestone rock formations and fig trees that are pointed out in the tour.

Great guide - interesting attraction
Aug. 2019 • Friends
The guided tour of Cutta Cutta caves takes about an hour. Requires a degree of fitness due to steps and uneven ground. Cave formations were beautiful and respectfully maintained. Worth a visit.
