Wow this was so much fun. You got to go really far down into the main chamber and you had to duck and twist through some of the narrow parts but it was no trouble at all. The humidity was crazy they said it was 100%. It was absolutely beautiful to see and our 7 year old absolutely loved the experience. What made it better was that you could look around at your own pace with no guided tour just a small one that the start to get you into the cave, this was good as kids can get board on long tours. It was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend

The background history of this wonderful cave is very beautiful. More than hundred year old since it was first discovered in 1900s, this cave was popular for honeymoon goers and couple looking to tie a knot. The cave has got numismatic chambers or part up for different purpose. Cool thing about the main chamber is you got to look at the ceiling and be amazed and lost in your wildest imaginations. You got to sing or dance (cautiously though) as it’s a tradition of this cave! The cave got few narrow point inside so look out for your head and always stay close wit your children once inside. The lighting and safety has been well looked after. The tour guide were at each intersection making sure we were safe or to answer any questions. It’s semi-guided meaning you do your own findings and tour around, the guide escort you inside though but not for whole course. Always get ahead of time at 10 minutes to make sure you are not left behind by your group and miss it.

Love the caves. Has that sense of adventure but still very well set out and safe. Kids and toddlers friendly. Definitely recommend on your to-do list! Photos just don't do the caves any justice - come experience it yourselves!!

If you've never been to a cave before, it's definitely worth a visit for $22.50 per person. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, there are 2.5 different paths to take, and it's always amazing to see something formed over hundreds of thousands of years! If you've been to caves overseas (e.g. Vietnam), this is a fairly small one in comparison. The longer path is only 37m deep and 370? steps down. Apparently this cave was the first official tourist destination in WA! Definitely book tickets online beforehand if you're going on a busy day, the online booking process is very easy and shows availability!
