Certainly not as large as the Janolan Caves, but it is worth doing the tour with the National Park rangers. Very interesting.

Accessible old local caves with stalagmites & stalactites - very similar to the caves near Yallingup in Western Australia. Great informative guided tour takes approx 1 hour. Beautiful formations and not hard to access up/down set of step stairs. Family pass approx $45.

The guide was very friendly. He has good knowledge of caves and rock formations. I was afraid that the tour might be boring but it wasn’t. The cave is underground and the steps are quite steep. The cave itself is small compare to some other...More

If you are into caves, history etc then this is a 'must do'. Unlike other limestone caves (around Mt Gambier etc) this is a dry cave. It is also relatively 'young' as caves go. some steep steps in and out - but all manageable.

We visited the Kelly Hill caves over the Easter Long Weekend and it was surprisingly quiet - we basically had a private tour! While it is definitely smaller than other caves (like the Jenolan caves) it is unspoilt and nice to see without hoards of...More

A small dry cave system on Kangaroo Island, but an interesting one. They had a couple of different tour options but we took the easy one. Our guide was lovely and very informative. Well worth the visit and reasonably priced.

I love limestone caves so i enjoyed the tour and Matt was a fountain of information. Be prepared for the stairs.

We did a tour of the caves and our guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable and told us much about the history and geology. Being a small group we also had the opportunity to ask lots of questions. The stalactites and stalagmites in the caves were...More

You will need a few days on Kangaroo Island but Kelly Hill Caves is a few hours at most.
