#1 of 14 in Things to do in Atherton
Hidden by a nondescript storefront, The Crystal Caves sells a vast array of gemstones individually designed by local artisans. Behind the shop, you'll find the entrance to an experiential tour of recreated caves showcasing eye-popping gems. The display is arranged in low lighting that brings out the sparkle of the amethysts, opals, and other treasures mined in Australia.

  • Incredibly overpriced unless you're one of those people that like fossicking, you're better off spending the money in the shop which is very nice with some lovely items for sale.
  • This place is AWESOME. We spent 2-3 hours here. Rene's collection of private crystals is absolutely amazing, and the walk through was really very fun. If you're an adult, prepare to crouch through low spaces. The gift shop only had one till running so there was a bit of a wait - not a big deal but could be frustrating if you're in a rush. Staff were delightful!
  • Great attraction with hundreds of things to see. The kids love exploring the caves and all the little knooks and crannys.
  • The kids had the most amazing time exploring the cave! And got a stunning geode to share!
  • Such a beautiful amazing place to spend a few hours. I'm in awe at all the magnificent crystals they have. Definitely a must to go and see!!!
