Although this walk was very hot, the caves are interesting and well maintained. Dogs are allowed which is nice, and the cars are watched over by volunteers. Worth the walk!
This is "must go place". I spent about 30 minutes in each cave，it was a bit hard to get down to the cave with dark,better prepare head torches,and also you will need sandals. In cave, we can see thousands of glow worms when turned off torches ,just as the stars hang out a clean sky at night in summer!
Watch out for thieves breaking your car. They have very nice City Safe Community Volunteers watching but you can still have your car broken damaged.
We arrived and discovered that parking was on the side of the road. After we had walked down a number of steps and slopes we got to the signage that explained that certequiment was required to see the caves.

As we were staying at Little Earth Lodge for a few days, we paid the Caves, just adjacent to the Lodge a visit.

In our younger years we were in and out of... 更多
I visited all three caves in October. The parking space is a bit scarce but I had luck. The path is a bit muddy but you should wear footwear that can get wet anyways. It's a good idea to wear a headlamp because you need you hands to climb into the caves. Amazing how you can the underground waters flow.... 更多
Be prepared! We arrived on a day that it had been absolutely pouring down and everything was covered in mud (I totally stacked it in a paddock walking to the caves and whilst I thought it was hilarious and a great adventure, others may not feel the same!) We're staying at the beautiful Little Earth Lodge and they rented us... 更多
We were staying at the little earth lodge next door and they recommended the caves so we got a head torch, helmet and shoes and map from owners at a cost of $7 and set off. We first walked up the hill and checked out the amazing rock formations and old growth forest trees it really was spectacular. Then entered... 更多
