Absolutely loved this cave, if you are questioning a visit you should definitely go. We were lucky to go on a smaller tour with a 30 minute talk and then we were left to explore and enjoy. We were told that at a specific point we should lay on the floor, close our eyes and then open again staring at the ceiling, amazing. Lots of different bits to see in this cave and a slide for children, which was just as much fun for us! We booked our tickets in Margaret River Visitor Center but you can book on arrival if there is space!
Pretty poor customer service. Over the phone, was told they had availability at 10.30am but I had to purchase tickets online. That's fine. Okay, so if I purchase them online can we come for the 10.30 slot? No. Once you purchase your tickets, you have to wait 12 hours to book a slot. So in what sense is the 10.30 slot available? Afternoon was available, but I couldn't book or pay over the phone, just had to rock up and hope we were in luck. Booking online for the afternoon slot was also not possible because of the "12 hour wait". I know the caves are a license to print money, so I don't expect the situation to improve. But my advice, if you really want to go, is book online at least a day in advance and don't expect much help from staff, who both times I interacted with them were friendly, but uninterested. This was our second attempt at visiting these caves, so we're going somewhere else instead.
Wonderful experience in the cave. The insides is really impressive. Like what they said on their website, it can get very strenuous climbing the steps inside the cave. If you are not feeling well, or not the fittest, or not so young, you are encouraged not to venture too deep into the cave
We had a great time with our 6 and 8 year old. They loved the tunnel so much they went on it about a dozen times! Caves were spectacular, we spent about an hour there in amazement. Well worth a visit.
What a truly magical place. Well worth a visit. Take your time to fully appreciate all the aspects of the cave and definitely listen to the guide in the cave explaining the beauty of your surroundings.
