  • Another fantastic cave to visit in Chillagoe. All of the caves have thier own unique features to see so make sure you visit as many as possible. Also wear shoes and no thongs! Also great to escape the heat during the middle of the day! Younger kids will have to be confident on doing some climbing.
  • great experience. the caves are well worth the trip. did the tour through Billy Tea Tours. M was amazing
  • great place. middle of nowhere. Fascinating history and geology.
  • Loved the caves but be warned. The decent into them is very steep and quite confined. Anyone with health issues should enquire before booking a tour as there appear to be little signage advising degree if difficulty or whether physically impaired people can gain access.
  • History,Views,Awesome Naturally occuring formations and friendly helpful people
