Accommodation at Jenolan Caves
In 1897, NSW Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon, designed and built the grand Jenolan Caves House, only a minute's stroll from the Grand Arch, as a resort or wilderness retreat for wealthy travellers. No expense was spared. He used the alpine, picturesque 'Federation, Arts and Crafts' style.
A grand hotel for 115 years, Caves House is on the NSW State Heritage Register. It has grown to incorporate romantic, historic guestrooms, modern rooms, backpacker lodge and bush cottages. Caves House retains all of its beauty and elegance, and is famous for its warm country hospitality. Caves House has hosted visitors from all walks of life, from honeymooners, families, backpackers, international tourists, celebrities and even royalty!
