A great place to visit with kids during school holidays, I wouldn't recommended for kids under 3 years as they don't have the patience and interest for heritage. A good idea would be to visit Mt Gambier as well while in the area.

My wife and I visited the Wet Cave in our tour of this terrific World Heritage site. The stalactites and stalagmite formations were awesome, and the walk through, accompanied by an extremely knowledgeable guide, was very interesting. Not too arduous a walk, although underground. Worth a visit!

Had an excellent visit here. Took out kids aged 10 and 4. We went for the budget option of Fossil Centre and Wet Cave. It was the perfect combination for us and we were able to go in and out of each area as many times as we liked until closing. We utilised this offering, only stopping for food and... More

What an amazing experience!! World Heritage listed for a reason. The whole park is very well set up and offers different options for the vast variety of visitors. We chose the Victoria Fossil Cave and so happy we did. Our tour guide, Tom, was so knowledgeable and his delivery was excellent - despite his BORING jokes 😜!! Just wanted more... More

We visited here on a booked tour of the Victoria Fossil Cave. We booked the tour online prior to our visit. The tour was really interesting and the guide was very knowledgable. We toured as a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids aged 9 and 6). Our kids found the tour very interesting. Although not probably boasting the... More

We visited here upon a recommendation from Roslyn from Di Giorgio wines and I'm so glad we did. A fascinating place to get a glimpse into life thousands of years ago! Our guide Peter was excellent, very knowledge and friendly!! Highly recommend!

We did the fossil cave tour which was fabulous. The cafe was a great place to kill a few minutes. The meals were tasty.

We are "cave pedestrians" and enjoyed the Jenolan caves in NSW, and Lurray and Skyline in the USA. One in our party previously visited the Tantanoola SA caves that were reported as smaller but more colourful and more visually interesting. The Narcoorte Wet Cave (main cave for the casual visitor) is of modest size, not colourful nor having impressive stalactites... More

Hubby and I have visited many good limestone caves in the past, but the Victoria Fossil Cave is different and very special. It's well worth a visit if you are interested in fossilised bones and caves. The guided tour went for more than an hour and was very interesting. We learnt a lot about how the cave was found and...

Cave tour was brilliant. It was another world and we were transported to prehistoric life. Fascinating and weird.
