  • 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
