Unfortunately for us it poured with rain the day we went and we were flooded out. We were hoping to see the summer solstice effect to no avail. The guides are very knowledgeable. Some of the stairs are hard to navigate with small kids, so be careful.

This place is so cool! Seeing the caves and learning how they were created/formed over the years was pretty interesting, but hearing about the explorers and how they discovered it and what they went through made the tour even better! But the best thing about the tour, is when they turn off all the surrounding lights so you can experience... More

This was a surprisingly wonderful experience. Our guide, Charlie, was enthusiastic and obviously loved sharing the caves with us. We did the one hour tour and the culmination was an almost spiritual experience in the aptly named cathedral cave. We would do this again and would certainly consider some of the more adventurous cave experiences they offer.

This was a truly amazing surprise. I went to this place with low expectations (basically a time killer) I booked the two hour adventure tour, then within the first few minutes in the cave I realized I was completely wrong. Capricorn caves was unbelievable on so many levels.. Scenery. Views. History. Mental and Physical challenges. Big thumbs up to our... More

I took the kids here for an experience with caves and climbing and a fun time and I think I enjoyed it more than the kids (just quietly). We went during the summer solstice and even though a cloudy day, we managed enough sun to get the whole experience. Tour guides are friendly, knowledgeable and know how to get a... More

I went here with my family (parents) and we loved it. It's educational, it's entertaining and there's even an adventure route. We just did the cathedral tour which was $30 per adult and runs for 1 hour. We caught the 11am session which is the only session between mid Dec - mid Jan to have a solstice section where they...
