    We go to the Cavern regularly and this time we were blown away by the presentation of the food! As usual the rooms were comfortable and although it was a wet weekend it didn't dampen our stay. We cannot wait to return again.

    What an absolutely fantastic place! Did a lovely hike up to the Cannibal Cave with our guide Mike showing us all the different flowers. The food was amazing, we really enjoyed our stay at the Cavern and we will definitely be back.

    I'd say you'd need to hire a car and drive. Or call the resort and ask if they can arrange a transfer for you.
