Toured the cave and loved it. Our guide was fabulous (wish I had caught his name). We loved seeing the fascinating rock formations and learning about the caves and their history. It is out of the way but we were really glad that we came....More

First off a good tip is to buy your tickets online before you arrive. They are discounted and are not sold at the shop on site. We just did the one cave tour, a combined Imperial & Diamond cave with Scotty the redhead amateur comedian...More

Amazing! We toured Lucas Cave and loved every second. Our guide, Graham, knew his sybject matter very well. He was friendly and humorous taking time to answer all questions and engage with the tour group. Large group but didn't miss seeing anything.

Organise as many cave tours as possible. They are all quite different with different features. Guides are good with clear explanations.

The Lucas Cave was recommended to me by the Ticket office in the Caves House precinct and well worth the money as it is run by NSW National Parks & Wildlife which is well organised as a group in my opinion. I purchased my ticket...More

There was a 2 year old on our tour yesterday of the diamond and imperial caves. Her parents didn't carry her at all. It's pretty flat and she used the rail on the steps.

Probably the Diamond Cave which includes the Imperial Cave, There are steps but they are optional, you can wait whilst the rest of the group does that extension as they double back. The Guides would give you advice online... More
