Capricorn Caves - Review
If the idea of a wedding in a million year old cave cathedral with natural acoustics all bedecked in fairy lights doesn’t arouse the romantic in you, then tell someone who might be interested. The cave is privately managed, and for once that’s a good thing. Various kinds of tours are offered, such as the Cathedral Tour or the Adventure Tour. They even have an in-house accommodation facility for those wishing to make an all night party of their events. The tour guides are knowledgeable about each cave, and each cave is unique. They might carry disco lights along with them because there’s a cave that when lit up is said to remind people of Disneyland. Is it the best spelunking and abseiling experience in the world? Probably not. Is it a near guarantee of a good time? Absolutely.

Capricorn Caves, Rockhampton Reviews
We had a fantastic tour of the caves today. We arrived early to try the burger for lunch and it didn't disappoint! Proper home made Aussie deliciousness. Our guide, Emily, was very relaxed and laid back about our tour which made it a lot more fun. I managed to konk myself in the head before we entered the caves but I was very careful once inside. The lighting and the bats were wonderful to see and if we had another day here I would love to try adventure caving. It's a great excuse to return to the caves on our next trip north. Excellent work guys!
We went on the cathedral tour of the caves. Even with mums knee reconstruction she managed quite well. It was amazing. Once in the cathedral music is played and they have lights change the look of the cave before plunging into total darkness for the rest of the song. It was breathtaking. A couple swing bridges out and its definitely something to check out. There are even adventure tours if you want to try something a bit harder.
This was an amazing experience. The caves are spectacular and have lots of interesting facts behind them, effectively portrayed through the friendly tour guide named Pete. There are many tour options avaliable, I participated in the scenic tour and had lots of things to view. Some sections of the cave are claustrophobic so be mindful of that if you do not like tight spaces. There is a gift shop that sells a few small snacks and drinks with lots of little souvenirs to buy.
Amazing experience in the caves. We learned about the types of formations in the cave and entered a truly incredible natural acoustic chamber within the caves. Our tour guide was great, explaining how the caves were discovered and all of the stories linked with them. I highly recommend the Capricorn Caves, even if you need to travel far to get there.
Loved the caves. The guide was great. Would have been happier with a smaller tour group. But we both still loved the experience.
