An impressive complex of caves hewn from the Queensland limestone by acid rain and underground water, Capricorn Caves first entered the national consciousness in 1882, when Norwegian migrant John Olsen discovered them. One of the longest-running tourist attractions in the state, activities such as rappelling, rock climbing, and fossicking can be undertaken within the cave system. Capricorn Caves is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Rockhampton Edition.

We had a great time on this tour. Going through the caves was both interesting and a fun experience. Our guide (Mandy?) was informative and highly knowledgeable. Our kids (8 and 10) enjoyed it so much... more »
Great little trip out to the caves. The tour guide knew her stuff and made it fun and interactive for all. Included in our tour were small families and myself a single traveler. So good for all. Thanks for the great coffee and fantastic service!
Most amazing experience. Our tour guide was marvelous and very informative. Loved the caves,it my second time time. They need to have kids free tours as the kids running around and being very noisy for the whole tour was very annoying and ruined it a fair bit.Parents should be controlling them but I guess they only care about themselves. Well worth the visit.
