Jenolan Caves

Diamond Cave

Pure Crystal

The Diamond Cave tour includes both the Imperial Cave (our easiest, most accessible cave), and the Diamond branch.

The Imperial follows an ancient river passage, and is mostly level. It is a wonderful, memorable experience for people of all ages, including children.

In the Diamond branch, the delicate passage is lined with pure white crystal formations, tinted with every shade of pink. The tour culminates at the ‘Gem of the West’, an astonishing crystal formation of helictites, stalactites, stalagmites, shawls and wave crystal.

This tour displays some of the most beautiful crystal you will ever see.

The Diamond Cave tour includes an optional visit to the northern 'Jenolan Underground River' via a 66 step spiral staircase. Less mobile visitors do not have to do this part of the tour.  Instead, they can sit in the main passage while the rest of the tour does this more strenuous section.
