I went here a number of years ago, when my kids were little, and they loved it. It's like an outback farm in Kentucky. If you're in the Mammoth Cave area with kids, and looking for a diversion beyond the cave itself, Kentucky Down Under is it!

A great stop! Cool cave, animals to interact with and beautiful nature hike. A bit pricey, but we enjoyed the stop...about 2 hours to see everything. If u have someone that has trouble walking distances, they have golf carts. Warning: the cave is NOT for anyone less than agile. Small spaces, lots of slippery steps up and down!!!

This was a completely unplanned stop on my road trip and it ended up being the best part of my trip! It is worth every penny. You really get to be close to animals and everyone is pretty friendly. If you are considering a stop here, do it!

Not bad but a bit overpriced. The animals and cave are cool. Worth it if you can get the groupon price.

Not every day you get to see a kangaroo in Kentucky. Friendly and approachable staff. Great place to visit.
