  • My partner and I took my 3 younger sisters to the caves tour and we also did the cave crawling adventure. Very fun and well guided tour. Highly recommend. 
  • Approximately one-hour guided tour, where you get to see very many bats. The biggest cave, called also Cathedral, has a very nice atmosphere.

  • Excellent guide and friendly staff. Cathedral Cave is impressive and the whole tour which takes an hour is made very interesting by the guide's knowledge.
  • Tour guides are really helpful. Beautiful caves
  • We had a great personal tour since we were the only ones at the time - the guide was very funny and knowledgeable. The cathedral cave is amazing, especially the sound and darkness experience. Great short thing to do when driving by, takes only approx. 1-1.5 hours.
  • The caves are a must if you are traveling through rockhampton they are absolutely beautiful!!
  • Caves are nice and good to get away from the heat outside. Best to do the adventure tour and cheap in comparison to other attractions. Camping ground is quite good amenities. Hard to find an even spot.
