TOUR FAQs

What is the cost?
Adult - $22  Concession - $18.50  Child: (5-15) - $15

How far is it to the Cave?
The Cave entrance is about 40 metres up the path from the parking area.

How big is the Carey's Cave system?

Is there only one tour?

Are there many steps or ladders?
There are 30 steps down into Careys Cave. After this, most of the pathways are fairly level with occasional steps.

Is it narrow? Will I feel claustrophobic?
Some people feel uncomfortable about going down the entrance steps, however the chambers are quite spacious.
If you do enter on a tour and decide immediately that you are not comfortable, the guide will take you out again.

13 degC - 17 degC (slight seasonal variation).

Is it suitable for my 5 year old child or 90 year old granny?
The paths and steps are quite easy for anyone who is reasonably mobile.
NB: No under 5 children please
Babies may be carried in a front harness but not in a backpack to avoid damage to the cave (or baby).

Animals are not permitted in Careys Cave. The only exception is a certified Guide Dog (German Shepherd, Labrador, etc.!)
