Activity Overview

Kentucky Down Under is an exciting family attraction located in Horse Cave, Kentucky, which is less than two hours away from Lexington by car. It features the Adventure Zoo, which is home to animals such as kangaroos, dingoes, and lemurs, and Mammoth Onyx Cave, one of the most easily accessible caves in the United States. Visitors are welcome to explore the zoo and take a tour of the beautiful underground caves as well as visit attractions such as the Bird Garden, the Woolshed, the Snowy River Air Gun Shooting Range, and do activities like gem mining.
