We had an awesome tour by Darcy our guide for the day!

This was my first time going into caves. (I tried once before and backed out at the last minute). Darcy with his easygoing talking and dialogue kept me focused on him and not where I was or what I was doing. Once Darcy was told it was my first time in a cave he made sure I was ok to go forward. My partner and I learnt so many things we didn’t know. To learn about the aboriginals and their beliefs and about the Dreamtime. To hear that they are doing all that they can to stop the bats in that cave system from becoming extinct. It was a very informative talk and it was delivered well. Thank you Darcy from Tony and Stephanie for making our tour the best we could have hoped for.
