Kelly Hill Caves, Kangaroo Island

4.5
#2 of 6 in Nature in Kangaroo Island
Go caving at dry limestone caves beneath the vast native bush lands at Kelly Hill Caves. Take the standard tour or an adventure version. During the adventure tour, crawl through caverns and some small spaces, guided only by the light of your head torch. Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Above ground, do the walk around the bush tracks to see goannas and echidnas.

    We tour takes about 45 minutes and was really boring. As the caves are "dry" here is very little of interest to see and our guide was tedious to listen to. Access to the caves is by steep steps.  more »

    Amazing experience to see these caves and the stalagmite structure. The tour guide is well informed and tells you all you need to know. Well maintained and definitely worth a visit

Where to stay in Kangaroo Island

Although most of Kangaroo Island remains relatively underdeveloped in a commercial sense, you'll find lodgings that include everything from spacious suites to economical hostels in communities like Penneshaw and Kingscote. The most expensive accommodations on the island, private cottages and beach houses near the water generally require a two-night minimum stay. For something more flexible and less expensive, consider one of the local campgrounds, many of which offer powered and unpowered sites, as well as cozy log cabins ideal for couples andĀ families with kids.
