Full description
Discover the incredible cave network at Jenolan, with a range of tour options to suit all fitness levels. Choose from a 1 to 2 hour guided tour with difficulty levels from easy to strenuous level. Opt for the best choice that suits your needs.

Marvel at the massive Cathedral Chamber is over 50 meters from floor to roof. Talented visitors are invited to sing in this chamber, which features naturally perfect acoustics. Many famous singers have performed in this chamber.

Experience the "Exhibition Chamber", the largest chamber at Jenolan and the size of a small football field. Admire the beautiful "Proscenium" which features stunning, colorful cave shawls. Crossing a high bridge, gaze down to the underground river far below, which is still, pure and blue.

If you are part of a small group and your tour guide has time, you may have the opportunity to see the Mafeking Branch of the Lucas Cave, which features some of the most beautiful stalactites and stalagmites at Jenolan. On the way in and out of the Lucas Cave, you may even see a wild wallaby.

Jenolan is located in a huge nature reserve, where many marsupials thrive. A colony of rare brush-tailed rock-wallabies lives at Jenolan Caves, and some of these have actually made their home near the entrance to this particular cave. A sighting is not guaranteed, but visitors should keep their eyes open, especially in the cooler months.

Amazing experience. Our guide was fabulous and so informative and approachable also. He gave us lots of time to take photos and you could tell he was really passionate about his job and these caves. We did the River Cave tour and loved it, especially the river itself. Amazing. Its not as strenuous as you think because you stop a lot to discover chambers so don't be put off about how many steps there are altogether. . Fabuo
