Kelly Hill Conservation Park

Explore the stunning limestone caves at Kelly Hill Conservation Park located in the south-west of Kangaroo Island and discover a magical underground world filled with amazing formations.

Take a guided tour of this impressive cave system and walk amidst ornate cave formations and discover how the caves and the spectacular decorations are formed.

Experience the splendour of the Show Cave Tour and admire the array of stalactite, stalagmite, shawl, helictite and column formations.

For the more adventurous, join an experienced guide on an Adventure Caving Tour where, equipped with a helmet and headlamp, you can crawl your way through an underground maze of smaller caverns. This tour follows part of the original 1920s tourist section of Kelly Hill Caves and features a small silt chamber and intriguing fauna fossils and bones.

Above ground, choose from one of the short walking trails or spend a day hiking to Hanson Bay which passes by a landscape of freshwater lagoons, mallee woodlands and coastal dunes.
