An extensive system of above-ground and subterranean caves, the Capricorn Caves are a wonder of nature. Formed nearly 390 million years ago from limestone rock on the seafloor, the cave sports many natural mineral deposits and original corals that can still be seen today. As you make your way through the well-lit caverns, learn about their unique origins as well as their history with humans, from Aboriginal people to settlers in the 1880s.

Marvel at the vast and beautiful Cathedral Cave, which also functions as a venue for weddings and underground opera thanks to its near-perfect acoustics. On your way out of the caves, navigate your way around the tight Zig Zag passage and across swinging bridges to end your tour with a sense of thrilling adventure.
