We did the Wet Cave and Fossil Centre and went back the next morning to do the tour of the Alexandra Cave. The tour of the Alexandra Cave was interesting & lovely. The café is nice to have lunch or a cuppa.

A great place to visit with kids during school holidays, I wouldn't recommended for kids under 3 years as they don't have the patience and interest for heritage. A good idea would be to visit Mt Gambier as well while in the area.

My wife and I visited the Wet Cave in our tour of this terrific World Heritage site. The stalactites and stalagmite formations were awesome, and the walk through, accompanied by an extremely knowledgeable guide, was very interesting. Not too arduous a walk, although underground. Worth...More

Hi Carl I only visited the Victoria Fossel Cave so I have a limited knowledge, also this would be a great cave or the boys. You may choose to do two and get a deal. Enjoy our visit.
