We've gone down quite a few commercial style caves in this area, all with the pretty lights and informative guides but this time decided to go down Giants Cave. Giants Cave is a large (hence its name) cave that has only had minimal enhancements to...More

Hi, thanks for the great review. It is quite a unique experience being able to go through on your own like that. It is a medium level adventure cave and as such children under the age of 6 years are not permitted. The nearby Calgardup...More

Giants Cave is a great adventure - self guided, so you can go at your own pace and observe at your leisure. It is thrilling to climb up and down ladders and through narrow openings. The staff provide you with helmets and torch lights. Be...More

Hi Scobie P, glad that you enjoyed your visit and thank you for the fantastic review. Because Giants Cave is a 'through' cave and you exit from a different place to where you entered, it can often feel like you are the only ones there!...More

The place itself is incredible. The reason I didn't like it was the fact everyone has audio players rolling at full volume, which means you can't get peace and quiet if you want to listen to the silence!!! Also there is a dead end on...More

For inexperienced cavers like ourselves, Giants will definitely test your mettle with steep ladder climbs, a short rope descent, tight spaces, nerve-wracking routes - all by torchlight! Experienced cavers will think it's a breeze but our 12 year old and I were quite scared and...More

Hi, it is difficult for us to quantify what a 'larger sized person' is. We have had taller people as well as more rotund people visit the cave without any problems. The real issue is a person's health and fitness. The cave... More
