Great helpful and friendly staff. Some of the best caves SA We went in the wet cave first that was fairly basic and open. Then the Tour of Victoria Fossil Cave, that was recommended. And the whole family loved it. Would highly recommend this one! A few step steps and ramps, but a great one to see. Well worth the... More

Our family did the novice adventure tour of the tomato stick cave. The main path was easy to negotiate and the supplied knee pads, overalls and helmets were barely needed. The young kids made it through all the optional challenges with no fear and no trouble. It was a bit of a tighter squeeze for my wife and I but... More

First of all, I get how important these caves are for fossils. However, unless you visit the Wonambi Fossil Centre, you barely see any fossils and the caves themselves are pretty unimpressive. My partner and I visited Tantanoola caves a couple days previously and, for $28 for two adults, saw impressive formations which were professionally presented by a competent and... More

Firstly we visited Victoria fossil cave which is fascinating. Our only issue was the tour guide, Andrew, who was very informative but was quite rude when a little girl in our group would talk every so often. Andrew ordered her father to take her to another area of the cave where they couldn't be seen or heard, they returned after... More

Amazing caves with great history, we couldn't spend much time as was getting late but make sure to have plenty time to explore and enjoy this, good for kids to learn and enjoy.

Took master 12, miss 9 and master 5 on the 1 hour Victoria Fossil Caves tour for $75 for the family and we all had a great time. The tour guide was really easy to listen to and the info he shared on our way around was fascinating. I was a bit worried that master 5 would lose it half... More

Yes it's more expensive compared to other touristy things you can do but it is worth the visit and very reasonably priced when you consider the quality of the tours. We did Akexandria Cave and the Fossils Tour. Allow 2 hours and be enchanted by some of SA's natural beauty.

We stopped in here not realising how huge the complex is. We enjoyed the self guide cave and are already planning our next trip back and which tours we are going to do. The children came away inspired and keen to do an adventure tour! Plan your trip and allow plenty of time.

We got there quite late on the afternoon so were only able to do the Victoria Fossil Caves (VFC) tour and Wet Caves tours (WCT). VFC is led by a knowledgeable guided tour. Looked awesome and learned a fair bit too. WCT is self guided tour and also worthwhile. Fossil centre is tacky so avoid unless you have kids, get... More
