Yes, well unknown to me you do not have to rug up while caving it isnt cold in there absoultely the opposite being quite warm in fact. We enjoyed walking through the caves quite a slippery floor on the concrete with lovely formations to view with a lot of laughter when the guide turned the lights off with children. We... More

These caves are really amazing. The paths a quite narrow and you have to bend down in lots of areas though out the tour but well worth the trip if you have never seen caves before. There are heaps of areas out side the caves to have lunch with free BBQ's. There is also a swimming pool in the park,... More

We enjoyed the 1st cave immensely but there were 1 or 2 tight spots. The guide pointed out while walking through the cave that since my husband is a big guy with bad knees he could have some issues navigating the 2nd cave. It would have been nice if that had been raised when he paid for the tickets for... More

Must go on a tour to access these caves and it is absolutely worth it. The park is gorgeous with every facility including a spring fed pool. Nearby town is funky, great food and beer.

We visited this place yesterday. I haven't been here for 20-30 years. Had a good tour through the Royal Cave. It's relatively warm inside. So don't need a jumper. And can be a bit humid. Our guide made a number of entertaining jokes and stories. A little hard to hear it all because it was a large group. We started... More

We had a group of 10 adults and 1 x 4yo and a baby. Your was enjoyed by all ages. The walk from 1st cave to Fairy was a decent hike through mountain"ish" terrain but worth the views and observing wild life along the way with kangaroos Inside the caves there is a lot of bending and walking hunched over...

These caves are very spectacular if you are prepared to do some bending and stooping along the walkways. We toured the Fairy Cave. You can never grow bored at some of the facinating formations. The stories of their discovery and establishment for tours is quite humorous. Activities within the caves over the years also create a good laugh. Our tour... More

Visited on Easter Saturday. Arrived early before the crowds. Did the Fairy cave first (recommend) then the Royal Cave. Dale our guide was great, full of lots of useful information. Cost for both caves for 2 adults no concession was $66. Inside the caves expect to bend down in places, some tight sections, watch your head, no touching anything. Plenty... More

It was a really informative and engaging tour with Dale amazing us with many knowledge and history about the caves! Both the Royal and Fairy Caves have different highlights and interesting facts so if time permit, would strongly recommend going for both tours!
