Visit the underground splendour of stalactites and stalagmites in Buchan. A world of colour and enchantment below, you will marvel at the formations and maze of caves.

Dating back over 300 million years, ancient rivers flowing and seeping through limestone rock formed the Caves. Europeans first explored them in the early 1900’s.

The Fairy Cave presents a visual tapestry of rich limestone shapes and Royal Cave is noted for the calcite-rimmed pools. The Caves are fully lit with walkways. Guided tours are conducted daily in both. Tours to ‘wild’ caves can also be arranged for small groups.

Stay right at the Caves Reserve above ground. Camp or stay in Cabins, or try the Wilderness Retreats for a mix of both. Wildlife like kangaroos, bellbirds & lyrebirds are commonly seen within the reserve.
