Really worth a visit this cave. Geoff is a great guide but the cave has so much to offer and the tour is expansive. Everything you'd hope for plus Glow Worms!!! Who doesn't love them!!!

this was the first cave i visited before the cave in Zhangjiajie,China.But i think it was more natural.The guide of the cave was very nice and friendly.He explained the details very well.There were steep stairs,very low stalagmites,older people should be extra careful.

The caves are worth the trip off the beaten track. The guide Geoff is very chatty so don't be in a hurry and enjoy an leisurely tour with a fun guide. Lots to see in this system including glow worms. Fresh farms eggs from his chooks for sale. Go over to Levon Canyon before you go back to the coast.... More

The caves are located in Gunns Plain, not far from Wings Wildlife Park. The caves are spectacular with great formations. There are even gloworms. Our guide Geoff was entertaining and informative. The tour last about an hour. There are some steep stairs and low headroom in some places, but the tour is taken at a good pace. Well worth visiting.

We stopped at this place as part of our itinerary and my fiancé and I were not disappointed the guide named Geoff was awesome and very informative and funny sometimes with shapes of the stalagmites. The entrance stair was very steep and not suitable for elderly. You'll need to watch your head as the stalagmites can be very low and... More

He has a great personality and is full of stories and information about the caves. The caves are very beautiful and not over commercialised - the route through the caves is not difficult other...
