Haven't been in 35 years. Completely forgotten how good this place was. Staff very knowledgeable. Great for the kids. Not overly big but a good experience. Big shout out to Paul for your great guidance.

Nice well-run place. Tour guide was great for the semi-guided tour. Sure there's quite a few steps, but we took it easy, paused often to read the info boards, and didn't really get puffed out.

Can't see a better naturally air-conditioned space above ground! 19 degrees C throughout the year, no matter what the outside weather is!!! Amazing stalactites and stalagmites formation! Proud to have visited a cave that is over a million years old!!!

Excellent experience. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly which enhanced the visit. Caves are definitely worth a view as there are some spectacular formations on hand. Waited at the deepest part of the cave for the other visitors to pass though, and it was pure silence. With the lights focussed on the stalactites / mites it was serene. Will visit again.
