Event Information

The Wellington Caves Complex offers three different guided tours; the Cathedral Cave, the Gaden Cave and the Phosphate Mine. The tours are conducted daily* and each takes around 1 hour to complete.

*with the exception of Christmas Day.

Cathedral Cave

The Cathedral Cave is the largest and most popular of the show caves. Highlights of this tour include the Altar (a 15m tall stalagmite), Thunder Cave, Headache Rock and The Well. This tour goes for approximately one hour. There are 150 steps in the Cathedral Cave, so comfortable footwear is recommended. 

Discovery Lab - Fossil Finding Session

Discover fossils from one million years ago in our hands-on Discovery Lab sessions. Learn about Australian Megafauna, dig through dirt from our Fossil and Phosphate Mine and see what you can uncover!

Phosphate Mine

The Phosphate Mine was a functioning mine during World War 1 and was closed in 1918. It was renewed and reopened as a tourist attraction in 1995. The Phosphate Mine tour takes you through mine shafts and also showcases areas visited by numerous paleontologists who uncovered Australian megafauna fossils.

The Gaden Cave is the smaller of the two show caves but contains large amounts of stalactites, cave coral, flowstone and helictites. This tour goes for approximately one hour. There are 120 steps in the Gaden Cave, so comfortable footwear is recommended. Maximum of 20 persons per tour.
