Capricorn Caves are located 23 km north of Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. It was first discovered in 1882 by a Norwegian migrant John Olsen. He went on to claim the land under a lease hold title and open the attraction publicly in 1884. The property was later reclassified to free hold land and is today one of the largest privately owned caves system in Australia. The attraction is still open to the public and is one of the longest-running tourist attractions in Queensland.
The tours are run hourly from 9 am till 4 pm with adventure tours run with advance bookings. The Cathedral Tour [hourly] lasts for one hour and consists of a 1 km walk through the caves with an adventure option at the end negotiating your way through a zigzag water-formed passageway by candlelight or fairy lights.
