Went with a driver to see this cave. Amazing place, but only 4 stars because of the poorly maintained stairways and paths. After rain it was extremely wet and slippery and a bit scary at times. But don't let this put you off. Just be...More

Beautiful environment, where you can take really pretty photos. Do combine the visit with the Wind Cave that gives the more traditional, dark cave experience. But I preferred the beauty of the Fairy caves. Works well for families, also with young children.

It's a big cave inside and I meant it's really big. Lots of stairs to climb, though manageable by most adults as the whole trail is ain't that long too. An hour is more than enough for you to walk the trail and explore the...More

Be prepared to climb a four storey set of steps to enter and watch your footing inside. No flip flops! It is worth the effort to visit these caves

The Fairy Cave is harder to reach,but is more scenic. The wind cave has micro bats is is not a photo friendly area.
