We went on the last tour of the day with a 2 year old. He described the experience as going into a tunnel to find dripping ceilings and every night for the last week, he has wanted to see the pictures taken in the Kelly Hill Caves. The guide was very relaxed and gave a fine presentation to add to... More

I have done quite a bit of adventure caving and wasn't anticipating the trip to be as great as it was. The cave is able to offer teeny crawl spaces for those who are keen - or not so teeny if you'd rather find a different route. Thoroughly great activity.

Carly was our guide and did a great job explaining the geology of the area and formation of the cave system. It's a set of steep steps going down and coming back up but it's worth the time and effort. Buy the tickets that gets you into all of the sites, it will save you $$.

Wasn't expecting much, but this tour is an absolute must see and we thoroughly enjoyed learning about how these caves were formed. Very beautiful. I wouldn't recommend this tour to families with small children as stairs are quite steep.

We stopped here on our drive around the Island, and initially weren't really convinced about going on the tour, but our 5 year old was pretty keen and had never been in a cave before. We all really enjoyed the cave and were really glad we decided to take the cave tour. Our guide was knowledgeable -and provided interesting information... More

This was rather cool! Okay, the stairs are pretty steep... but it's well worth the climb! It's amazing how many limestones grow inside this cave... they looked amazing! Theres a couple of bats here and there. They showed us how dark it can get by turning off all the lights in the cave. Yep, it was totally dark... couldn't see... More

A pleasant stop at the end of the Wilderness Trail. Had 45 minutes underground learning about how this little gem came to be. Great guide, and fun time.
