Buchan Valley a small but unique village of East Gippsland with scenic views, underground caves, friendly to visitors

This was a wonderful experience we visited the Royal Cave and the guide was very informative. Definitely worth a visit.

Today was my 3rd visit and this time we went to the Fairy Cave. What a wonderful experience. We were lucky to have a small group of 8 people and Graeme (i think it was Graeme or was it Graham?) anyway he was an excellent guide through the caves and obviously enjoys his job as he was happy to answer...

Attended both tours. Both were informative. Hard to believe how amazing nature can be. Pack at lunch as there is no cafe or kiosk.

We only had time to do the Royal Cave, but that felt like enough for the one trip. As others have said, it did feel a bit rushed at times, but we did have enough time to enjoy some of the more beautiful spots, of which there are quite a few. The guide provided lots of interesting information about the... More

The tour of the caves was very interesting and our guide Andrew was very informative. You can only buy tickets near the entrance to the park then drive to the entrance of the caves. There is a choice of two caves to explore. Most tourist centres will have their brochure with the times the tours start. Well worth it, loved... More

This is a great day out if you like caves. Two quite small but very pretty caves put you very close to the limestone action. There's time to do one cave, pop back into town for refreshments, then do the second tour. The double pass is only $33. Well worth a visit.
