An impressive complex of caves hewn from the Queensland limestone by acid rain and underground water, Capricorn Caves first entered the national consciousness in 1882, when Norwegian migrant John Olsen discovered them. One of the longest-running tourist attractions in the state, activities such as rappelling, rock climbing, and fossicking can be undertaken within the cave system.

  • Such a great tour and just magic ....WE have caves here in WA but these are different to ours. The music was just Magic . Well worth the tour ,very special . 
  • 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.
  • Brilliant hide-away with lots of wildlife, caves are amazingly beautiful but the cabins were let down by the really old air con (and it was far too hot to get any sleep) which doesn't quite fit the higher price bracket . Tip: Do it, just not in the hotter days of the year.
  • Fun for the family.
