Wonder at the natural beauty of the Wellington Caves. When visiting you have a choice of tours within three significant cave sites, so within a few steps beneath the surface you will unearth landscapes so distinct you won’t stop at one. Once you hit sunlight again, grab a magnifying glass and examine fossils from a million years ago in our Discovery Lab or simply enjoy a quick bite and drink at the Visitor Experience Centre. While you’re there sneak a souvenir to surprise someone at home or to entertain on return trip. Keep an eye out for the opening of our new Ancient Landscapes exhibition. Immerse yourselves in a timeline where ancient seas, megafauna and the nation’s first people shaped the landscape you see today.
We are located off the Mitchell Highway (A32) so look out for signage approximately 9km or 5 minutes south of Wellington. We have parking for everyone from Bus’s to Caravans so come explore or just stretch your legs.
