  • Can't say enough about the friendly staff and I really admire how knowledgable our tour guide was - quite inspiring. The Marakoopa Cave isn't massive, but still spectacular in it's own way with glow w...  more »

  • This is not the greatest Cave you will ever see, but as it is quite small you can see a lot in a relatively short time. The tour follows an underground river that enables you to enjoy reflection pools...  more »

  • Well worth the experience and the short detour from your path. We did only go into one cave due to time restraints....spectacular... The guide was excellent and very informative
  • Incredible to see what lurks under the surface. Very professional, informative and entertaining guide. I can see how it could be cluttersome with a large tour however we only had 4 on ours. Would definitely recommend if you’re in the area!
  • I have nothing but great memories of these caves. It was a romantic date for my wife and I, an adventure for my 1 year old son, and incredible acoustics to try out some of Handel's Messiah in the Cathedral Chamber. Not a very long tour, but an iconic memory of Tasmania for my whole family.
  • Amazing place! So good that I moved my plans to come back the next day to do the other tour.
  • 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
