An interesting outing. I would not "rave" about it. It was just ok for us. The surroundings are lovely in Autumn. We sat near the lake, and my daughter (3.5 at the time) collected Autumn leaves. The cave itself is man-made. So if you want...More

Even though it's a man made cave it is interesting to know it was actually built to help these creatures multiply since Australia and NZ are the only places in the world with glow worm population. Well done and very interesting and informative.

We are pleasantly surprised at how knowledgeable the guide is and having a sense of humour and a loud voice did help with making the commentary exciting and easily understood. The half an hour tour passed by too quickly. After the tour there was a...More

It was an ok cute tour through. Very man made but well done. Tour guides are lovely. People taking the tour were noisy and couldn't/wouldn't control their children in the dark which ruined the experience a lot

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I realised the caves weren't natural caves, but I was simply blown away, it is such a magical experience.

it's totally safe. We watched a short video and spent about 30min in the cave. The guide was attentive and helpful, so not to worry. Not flash light though 😉
