We love visiting caves, so enjoyed the natural phenomena. Our guide was obviously 'over it', complaining the best part of the time (no change in the till, so many tours, she's the only one there,etc), except when going through her well rehearsed spiel.

This was a very interesting trip. I thought the tour guide (young woman) can't recall her name was very friendly, energetic and informative. She really made the trip despite being run off her feet as they were understaffed and she was running the operation solo. The caves are beautiful. I could have happily spent longer.

This place is worth a visit and its on your PARKS card if you buy one. The guide was great and very informative. We enjoyed the cave not big but very pretty. The only place where toilets were not up to standard for the whole of KI.

we were the only people on our tour so we were able to ask lots of questions. The guide was very informative. The caves require a walk followed by a decent down about 40 steep steps. The caves are very beautiful and are definitely worth a visit.

Went as it was one of the options on the National Parks pass and am very glad I did. The guide was very knowledgeable and did a good job. The caves are beautiful to see, the colours are amazing. Variety of formations including stalactites, stacelmites and some multi-coloured fan formations. Most of the tour is on paths, the only tricky... More

On a warm and muggy day it was great to descend into the Kelly Hill caves. Jemma was our guide and although she was quite young she did a good job of explaining how the caves formed as well as how the caves 'breathe'. The "lights off" moment was actually very relaxing and yes it is pitch black. Well worth... More

Good, short, informative guided tour through an unusual dry cave environment - no animal or plants but many stalactite formations that are not growing at present. Very different from other Aussie cave systems e.g. Jenolan and Cutta Cutta. Also recommend looking at landscape features and vegetation along the adjacent Burgess Hike. The cave is a good option if it's raining... More

If you buy the national parks pass, the caves are one of the tours included in the price. You can buy tickets just for the caves, but the pass is an economical way of doing it and all components of the pass are worth seeing. The tour is interesting and of course look amazing. Kangaroo Island is an amazing place... More

We went on the last tour of the day with a 2 year old. He described the experience as going into a tunnel to find dripping ceilings and every night for the last week, he has wanted to see the pictures taken in the Kelly Hill Caves. The guide was very relaxed and gave a fine presentation to add to... More
