Nice caves with good guides. Great for our grand kids who as well as learning stuff got to go through little tunnels that most adults struggle with, which is all part of the fun. Not the best if like me you have some back issues as there is a fair bit of stoopng down to dodge ceilings. Nice park and... More

My friend went to the Buchan caves back when she was a child with her school and hadn't been back since. We decided to go away from the hustle and bustle in Melbourne and agreed to do a little road trip to Lake Tyers, Bemm River, Buchan and Metung. What an amazing captivating place! When you arrive in Buchan you... More

These caves are stunning and continue for a long distance unlike many other caves I've visited. We went on the Fairy tour (45 min) as there were less people. Typically dislike tours, but we were at the front so the noise from the others was distant and the walk agreeable. The gov't takes good care to preserve them while giving... More

We have been luck enough to see plenty of caves. We did enjoy these caves, however once you've seen a number of caves they start to all look alike ! We did the Royal Cave and the spots we stopped in the cave were interesting. Worth a trip if you are in the area.

Went to the Buchan Caves as I hadn't been there for about 40 years as a child, and had returned to visit the District. We did the Royal Cave tour. Truly a wonderful experience even for those a bit fragile about caves because its so beautiful and worth the effort to go and see. Our guide was really great and... More

My girlfriend and I recently travelled to Buchan and we decided to visit the caves. Our tour was amazing it lasted 45 mins and our tour guide Aaron was well informed on the caves history and kept the tour fun. The location is beautiful and a well hidden Gem in Victoria. The caves / tour is very well priced.

We had a bush BBQ using pieces of wood. The children enjoyed seeing the kangaroos hopping around nearby

The fairy cave is definitely something to see. The decorations in the cave are extravagant. Furthermore, our tour guide Aaron provided us with interesting facts in a fun and interactive manner. He was upbeat, friendly and knowledgeable. If visiting this cave I would recommend requesting to do the tour with Aaron. Overall a great experience!

Beautiful campsite in the natural forest, great amenities with clean showers, kitchens, BBQ's and fireplaces, local wildlife including wallabies and birds, and interesting cave tours hosted by passionate locals. A short stroll to the local village is possible to collect groceries, ice, beer. Local cafes and pub available too. All very quaint. Natural spring water pool also on site, a... More
