Yep camp ground is great, and a tennis court for kids games. Some caves are really close, but all the caves are great for kids.

Hi Carl I only visited the Victoria Fossel Cave so I have a limited knowledge, also this would be a great cave or the boys. You may choose to do two and get a deal. Enjoy our visit.
