We did a tour of the caves and our guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable and told us much about the history and geology. Being a small group we also had the opportunity to ask lots of questions. The stalactites and stalagmites in the caves were very beautiful especially when lit up.

We have probably been spoilt, with Jenolan Caves being our ultimate caving experience. Kelly Hill was just not even a comparison. Interesting history but it just didn't cut it as far as beauty goes. Decided to have lunch there after our bush walk and were appalled to find possum scats covering every surface in the lunch area. Surely this would... More

Kelly Hill cave walk in group with guide every half an hour or so. Very short distance. But beautiful innside with stalagmites etc. Good guiding, explains all. You can hold pieces of rocks, heavy. Guide spends time asking what the forms look like.

This was an amazing tour into the caves within this hill. The guide Annie was wonderful and really enjoyed taking us on the tour and answered the many questions from the children. I recommend this to all ages, to see how awesome nature can be.

An adventurous teenager searching for a thrill certainly got his fair share in the adventure cave tour. 'Best adventure cave tour ever!' He said. Absolutely filthy, sweaty and totally exhausted after 2+ hours of sliding and crawling through the wild caves with Nick (tour guide). They provided helmets and torches. Exceptional local knowledge of the caves, history and geology. The... More

Fabulous!! We did the showcave tour. Our kids (10, 7 and 4) really enjoyed this adventure as did I. Our guide (Dave) was excellent. The stairs as you enter into and exit the cave are very steep and if you are 48 and carrying your 4 year old they are exhausting. Well worth the effort.

Great tour. Steep steps, but so worth it. Lovely & cool on a hot day! Once you start looking around, it will be amazing what shapes & objects you can see in the displays. Informative & a top spot to visit.

The Kelly Hill Caves are unique, but they do not compare to the likes of Jenolan Caves in NSW. The guide was informative and interesting. For his first tour, our tour guide did an excellent job and got applause from the group. Well done mate. The bush setting is fantastic and there is plenty of wildlife to see on the... More
