If you visit, expect to spend an hour maximum here. The caves are easy to stroll through and are interesting though not huge. There is a shop and cafe here too. It’s a cheap, quick trip. I think it has the potential to be improved...More

Caves had good information about the landscape and history. Lots of fossils and bone fragments to look at. A nice hour in a cool ( temperature) cave when it has been very hot. Cafe had good coffee and ice lollies. Play area needs a revamp,...More

We have driven passed this on a number of occasions so decided to stop and check it out. It's a worthy thing to do if you want a little time out of the heat or rain, but don't expect the awe-inspiring caves you see pictures...More

It wasn't what we expected. The cave is quite little so the visit was short and not interessting. The dinosaurs at the entrance look cheap (some of then were broken), as well as the souvenirs in the shop.

Easy access, good for bad weather or to get out of the heat. Okay for kids and pushchairs. Don't expect lots of skulls (the name) though. There are just 3 models in a case. Lots of stalagtites etc though. Good parking. Cafe and gift shop...More

Well worth a visit when the kids are tired of the beach. Also a useful option for the rare rainy days. The cave has been developed carefully for visitors so the 'feel' of it has not been ruined.

This is my fifth visit. Each time with different family members. It a great day out. It’s an amazing cave. Which takes around 1/2 hour to look at. Winding its way deep into the hillside until eventually coming to a very deep ravine of water....More

A great place to take the grandchildren, especially if the weather is not so good, or if you want to keep them of the sun for a while.
