Treat Yourself to a Healthy Workout! Exercise your way to lovely legs, by exploring our caves.

All that walking, both above and below ground, is terrific for your heart, lungs and circulation!  Think of all the kilojoules you burn when you tour just one of our caves - and we have so many!

Currently, we offer:

  • 10 guided show cave tours:
    • 1 - 2 hours each
    • 250 - 1300 stair steps each 
    • 9km total
       
  • a free self guided tour - 476 stair steps
  • 5 free bushwalks - easy (20 minutes) to strenuous (1.5 hours)
  • 3 challenging adventure caving experiences (2 - 8 hours)

If you did 3 activities each day, you could be at Jenolan for more than a week, enjoying fresh mountain air, unwinding, getting fit, learning new things, having amazing experiences, staying in atmospheric accommodation, bonding with your family, rekindling a romance - having a truly memorable time!  

Remember that with most of our show cave tours, you pay full price for the first one only, and half price for subsequent tours.

Don't worry.  Jenolan is for people of all ages and fitness levels.  Some caves and bushwalks are easier than others, so that older, less mobile visitors can have a memorable time.  And if you really hate walking, you can always relax in Caves House!
