Firstly, the location is great, because this is just around 20km away from Trywalla Wildlife Park, so you can combine the two attractions if you wish, which is what we did. Tours run ever hour, and we were fortunate to get here just before the...More

The cave is beautiful and the guide was keen to show us as much as she could to make us enjoy the visit. The highlight of the tour is when all the lights are off! The show of the glowing worms is fantastic
