The cave was amazing, the tour was worth every cent. This tour is suitable for everyone who can walk, and it offers access for those with mobility issues. There is... read more a short time when they turn off the lights so that you can experience the full darkness of the cave, but this is in the cathedral where everyone can sit down. We also really enjoyed the lights and music. The tour ends with the option of an “easy” or a “hard” way out of the cave. The hard way involves a bit of stooping and manoeuvring around some tight bends, but nothing too claustrophobic. We saw some extremely rare ferns growing in the cave, a a few of the micro bats as well. A great day out.

Visited Capricorn Caves & did the Cathedral Tour it was value for money, if you like learning about and observing some natural beauty. Some stairs/ramps but not tiring.... read more Tour guide very informative and gave us time for plenty of photos. We were given 2 ways to get out 1: back through the Cathedral or the "zig-zag" way.

The next day we decided to take the tour of the caves and were even more impressed. The tour was fabulous and our guide so knowledgeable.

Discovered in 1881 by a Norwegian immigrant, the caves were owned by the Olsen family until 1988, when they were purchased by a couple. Capricorn Caves are the largest privately owned cave system in Queensland. They are also a unique cave system.
Being claustrophobic, I elected to do a simple cave tour. However, for the more adventurous, it’s possible to do a 90 min caving experience. Highlight of our tour was the cathedral, when the guide turned off all lighting and played a superb piece of music, show-casing the acoustic’s of the cave.
