Full description
Experience the exhilaration of adventure caving in the Jenolan Caves, whether a first-timer or skilled adventurer. Leave the lights and paths of the show caves to explore spacious caverns and small passageways. Crawl through tight spaces and face your fears. Learn about the cave environment along the way.
Two highly qualified guides will lead the tour. This exciting 2-hour tour includes climbs, squeezes, crawls and maybe even an abseil. Physical flexibility is required. After donning overalls, and a harness, helmet and headlamp, you will receive a safety briefing. As your confidence grows, the squeezes get longer.
Proceed through the Crystal Chamber and take a break in the Chapel. Your guide will lead you into the Rockpile, then through another squeeze. This adventure is called the Plughole for good reason. You'll take an s-bend out of the cave, emerging into the Imperial Cave. At the end of your tour you'll receive a certificate of achievement and free photographs that you can download.
