Donna Cave, Chillagoe

North Queensland

Donna Cave is one of the 3 caves in Chillagoe managed by the NPWS. Access is only by guided tour with a NPWS Ranger who provides a commentary on the formation and history of the cave.
The cave is well lit and has steel walkways and stairs (approx. 300) throughout.
The stalactites and stalagmites are awesome and the whole experience is well worth the effort.

    Fantastic show cave. Guide was very knowledgeable and the caves were spectacular. I definitely recommend taking the trip out but spending a night in Chillagoe as there's so much to do and explore!
