Only saw the one cave which was interesting but I am used to government run ones like the Fairy and Royal Caves at Buchan with the lighting behind and formations protected. The Fairy Cave was big and you have to climb heaps of steps. Smells...More

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