Jenolan bush walks
Jenolan Caves is situated in a huge nature reserve and wildlife refuge, forming part of the 'Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area'. There is no fee to use our 6 scenic bush tracks. Our bush walks are great activities to enjoy before, after or between cave tours. In the quiet of the early morning or at dusk, you might glimpse wild native animals and birds.
The protection of the pristine wilderness around Jenolan Caves is our priority. To ensure its protection for the future, we ask visitors to please take all rubbish away.
To enjoy any of our bush walks, please wear practical shoes and a hat. Take drinking water with you.
NOTE: 10 June 2016 - Due to recent heavy rain, we have needed to TEMPORARILY close the entrance to the Devil's Coach House Cave at the Grand Arch end. You can still walk up to Carlotta Arch, and then down into the McKeown's Valley. From there you can explore the Devils Coach House Cave, or walk up the McKeown's Valley track. However, you must return the same way, via Carlotta Arch. You won't be able to walk through the Devils Coach House into the Grand Arch.
Also, the Jenolan River Walk and the Blue Lake Loop are TEMPORARILY closed.
We have revitalised 3 of our 6 scenic walks, that you can do using our FREE App - download it BEFORE your visit.
Note: As the app is 125Mb, it must be downloaded using Wi-Fi. As we do not have Wi-Fi at Jenolan, please download the app BEFORE your visit.This same app also guides you through our Devil's Coach House Cave and Nettle Cave - you can choose commentary for either adults or children. The adult commentary comes in several languages. You can also choose a fascinating Aboriginal culture tour. See more.
