Stopped off when we saw the sign as we had a couple of hours to kill. Could have been fine but tours only run every hour and we would have had to wait 45 min so we skipped it. Charge is $75 for the cave tour though - hope it is worth it!

Loved it here. The guide had so much knowledge and had plenty of time to take photo's. Enjoyed being in the chapel. Make sure you use the aeroguard that is supplied. Mozies.

We visited the capricorn caves arriving for the last tour at 4pm on a Saturday. We were lucky to find that we were the only people waiting, and so were fortunate to get a private tour. Our guide, Charlie was excellent as she was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable regarding the information and history of the caves. The highlights were the... More

A visit to these caves was an amazing experience. Because the caves are mainly above ground, they are different from any other caves we have visited. The main feature was the "Cathederal" which has been set up for weddings and the twice yearly Opera in the Caves which is on our bucket list to attend. Our guide, Alex, was most... More

Although the city of Rockhampton has not much on offer, the caves are worth the stop (or even a detour). Joined a group and the guide was very informative about it all and paired it up with good humor. Well spent money.

Visited this lovely attraction, and although I had visited other bigger limestone caves before in Malaysia, this was the first "above ground" limestone cave I visited, with impressive tree roots snaking through crevices in the cave. But the star of the attraction, in my opinion, was the guide. (I think her name was Catherine or something, I can't remember too... More
