Hi, I have a 6 & 8 year old. Is it worth visiting both the Victoria and Alexandra cave? From all the reading it would seem the Victoria is great for fossils whereas the Alexandra is great for cave formations (stalagmites and stalactites). Or does all this get covered through one cave visit. Happy to pay for different experiences, just want to make sure kids won’t be bored by second cave? Thank you.
Go with the Alexandra Cave tour and you can do the wet cave on your own after if they are up to it.
Hi there Kirsty D,
Not being an expert on the caves I am sure that both of your children would benefit from a visit to the Naracoorte caves.
It sounds like you have done some research and I would recommend the Victoria Fossil Cave as a good start to see how they enjoy the cave experience.
The caves have great lighting and the Guides are very knowledgeable.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
I agree, It is a lovely area for families anyway!! Enjoy
Hi. The Victoria cave has both features and as the tour inside the cave is only about 30+ minutes (the rest of the time is explaining the formation of the caves), ideal for children. Actually there was a family from Singapore in our group with ages ranging 4-9 (I'm guessing) - they were more interested in the skeletons than cave so i think think cave would be more suitable.
