Kelly Hill Caves is so under sold by Sealink and the Government. The caves are great to see and the guides bring a real understanding of this type of formation ie there are only two caves in Australia that are formed from sand dunes all...More

If you only choose one Parks and Wildlife attraction, this has to be it. Caves provide a mysticism that the guides protract and enhance with their wonderful facts. I thoroughly recommend the special two hour caving expedition - there is more to Kelly Hill Caves...More

Visited in winter. Waited half an hour for guide to return from last tour, but he was humourous and informative. We were there for a little over an hour. Easy relaxing tour

Highly recommend a stop at this cave sight. Rich history and science. Takes 30-40mins and you walk away with an incredible experience.

Informative tour well worth doing. Family friendly. Steep staircase to enter so anyone with mobility issues would be an issue. Tour guides are well informed and are happy to answer questions.

we were the only people on our tour so we were able to ask lots of questions. The guide was very informative. The caves require a walk followed by a decent down about 40 steep steps. The caves are very beautiful and are definitely worth...More

There is a fairly steeep ladder to descend when entering the caves and it could be a bit dangerous for a young child.

You will need a few days on Kangaroo Island but Kelly Hill Caves is a few hours at most.
