Caving Reviews

“My partner and I had loads of fun adventure caving.

Paul and Kate were excellent hosts. I wouldn’t call myself the most adventurous of people, but with Paul and Kate’s help and encouragement I was climbing through tiny holes, across crevasses and up steep tunnels. The activity was enjoyably challenging, but very do-able for most relatively fit people.
We encountered glow worms and cave crickets. We were lucky enough to see so many glow worms that it looked like a sky full of stars! Gorgeous.
You will get wet and muddy, and do lots of crawling around on your hands, knees and belly, so be prepared! We would definitely recommend this activity.”

“WOW the Caving Adventure was so much better than what we all thought. 

We had an expectation of walking in the caves with maybe a few tight spots, Well you proved us all wrong. It was a sensational experience, lucky none of us are claustrophobic. Hahaha. Well we are all planning our next trip. 
Thank you for the best night.”

“Fantastic first time caving experience

Was a little nervous going in, but our guides were really helpful and friendly. The experience itself was definitely physically challenging and tested your limits if you get a little claustrophobic, but it’s a really fun experience and would highly recommend. Make sure you wear shoes that have good grip on them as you’ll need them!”

“Muscles I didn’t even knew existed hurt!

A fab experience that was physically testing in parts and mind blowing in others! The glow worms were mesmerising and the instructors were friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend!”

“So much fun

Great fun, hosts were very friendly and helpful. Was much more fun and challenging than I anticipated but would definitely recommend.”
