Sleeping beauty cave

Hi I'm planning a family hike from Garden castle to sleeping beauty cave and engagement cave and planning to overnight in one of the caves. From other peoples experience is it safe for a family of four to sleep alone in the cave? Any suggestions for a two day hike with kids also welcome thanks.

I've been overnighting in caves with my son since he was 4 years old, he's 9 now. Recently my daughter has started coming with as well, she's 5. Never had any incidents regarding safety. If it's a first time hike for the family, I might suggest going to Pillar Cave rather - same distance as Sleeping Beauty, but it's a much easier walk and, in my opinion, it's a more pleasant cave to stay in.

Thanks Dillon for your reply in fact Pillar cave was what I thought of first but was worried about the steep climb up Rhino peak. We have been hiking as a family my youngest is 8 my oldest 16 so dont mind a little challenge. Wanting to surprise my husband for his birthday so I need to organize everything was just concerned about safety? Would you recommend we use a tent? Hoping to go last weekend of September? Who do I contact to book the cave?
