  • A must visit if you are visiting Tasmania, worth taking a little detour if not in the vicinity. The walk was very informative and fun. The shade and light effect inside the caves made it all very dramatic, recommended for whole family. However, there are some steep stairs to climb inside, so be mindful of that if having bad knees or joints. It's pretty cold inside therefore don't forget your jumper and beanie
  • I'm giving our tour of King Solomon's Cave 5 stars mainly because Renee is a bloody great tour guide and she gave us our own private tour as there were no other people visiting at the time. We took our young daughter to see the caves and Renee quickly took her under her wing and taught her everything about how the stalactites and mites are formed. I immediately sensed that Renee had a teaching background and sure enough she did. She answered all of our questions with interesting answers and has more enthusiasm for her subject than Liberal candidates at election time! Renee showed us everything, from cave spiders to fossilised bones to tree roots coming through the roof. The tour was supposed to last only 45 mins but because we were chewing her ear off with questions the tour lasted over one hour. Thanks Renee, you created a great memory for my daughter.
  • Was awesome for all. Kids loved it. Glow worms were wicked. Tour guide was good fun
  • This place is beautiful. One of my favourite places in Tassie. Tour guides Alvin & Renee are fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed our tours. Make sure you take both, they’re both beautiful but so different
  • Fantastic loved it with our three kids, you best was five. A great family outing, had a brilliant guide as well :)
