What a magnificent place for a mini refreshing break. The caves are spectacular, the restaurant men choices, staff service and food, five stars. The buffet breakfast a healthy way to start the day.

This is a must do on your activity list if visiting Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. It's a long windy drive from Canberra and a shorter drive from Katoomba, which is quite scenic. The tours are run often and professionally. The caves are expansive and...More

We enjoyed the caves & opted for the 1 hr Imperial cave tour, which is the least strenuous one. Better posted information about tour pricing would be helpful as the board is a little dated & confusing. We were lucky to be in a small...More
