  • It's a little out of Mount Gambier, but not a long drive to see such an amazing cave. Nothing much seems to be roped off from view so you really get great views, up good and close, of the amazing form...  more »
  • A must see. We were shown the caves by a guide who is obviously proud of the cave he looks after. Nice and open cave suitable for those worried about enclosed spaces. Stairs were the tightest space an...  more »
  • A great place to visit to fully appreciate a limestone cave and its history. Hard to believe that the cave has only been open for 80 years old, a fairly new and undamaged find. Worth the detour  more »

  • An interesting cave tour and some beautiful scenic walks
  • Good facilities right at the cave. There's hot showers, a kitchen with fridge and microwave, and lots of camping spots. There's also a tourist centre, cafe and shop. There wasn't anyone around when we arrived, so it might be good to book in advance.
  • A must visit if you are travelling to Mt Gambier, it's really pretty guys!!
  • Very disappointing that despite checking their website and arriving after 3 days kayaking that they were closed. Very poor customer service, why bother putting tour and opening times on a website if you don't stick to them. It makes it very difficult and disappointing for those who plan ahead. At least 20 other people arrived and left!
  • Worth taking the tour of the caves. Nice grassed areas to have lunch too
