An incredible natural wonder! Great tour by Mindy and the bonus song sung by her to allow us to experience the full acoustic goose bumping experience. Thanks to Jordan and the whole team for a wonderful visit! Highly recommend!

The caves are in a nice location, only a short drive from Rockhampton and it is lovely and cool inside the caves. Our tour guide was friendly and her knowledge of the history of the caves and area was very good. The caves are like a little grotto of caverns, but exceptional in that there is wheelchair access. The "cathedral" itself is beautiful and it would be great to see a wedding there. There is a cafeteria, toilets and some tourist information facilties at the site, as well as accommodation/caravan park facilities. Its worth a stop

We picked this location to camp and decided to visit the caves as well.
Lynda, our guide was lovely and informative. The caves were the first we had ever visited that are above ground.. and therefore, fascinating.
The sight of the roosting bats was truly amazing, a real David Attenborough moment.
Really enjoyed the musical interlude in the cathedral cavern was very atmospheric ('Hallelujah' - Leonard Cohen)
Lovely....
