Getting to Jenolan - Arrive Early for Escort Vehicle

On Edith Road, 3 kms before Jenolan, at the top of the steep valley descent, STOP AT THE BARRIER. The descent is now one-way, so Transport for NSW will escort your vehicle 3km down to our carparks. Then, walk from either carpark, or catch our free shuttle bus from the upper carpark, right down to caves and hotel. Escort vehicles run every 20-minutes and shuttle bus runs more frequently. To be on time for your tour, please arrive at the barrier (3km from the caves) *** AT LEAST 1 HOUR BEFORE YOUR FIRST BOOKED ACTIVITY.*** Escort vehicles leave our car park every 20 minutes, to accompany vehicles back up the hill. The gate is locked at 6pm every evening, so all day-visitors must be out of the Jenolan Valley by 6:00pm.

Due to Road Closures, Accessing Jenolan Caves Has Changed if You Are Travelling from Sydney.

Even if you have previously been to Jenolan Caves, or are familiar with the area, please note the detour below, to ensure you’re able to successfully navigate to Jenolan, to experience Australia’s most spectacular caves, iconic dining and historic accommodation, all set in the Blue Mountains World Heritage wilderness.

DIRECTIONS - From the Great Western Highway, turn left onto Jenolan Caves Road. To avoid road closures that exist further along this road, turn right onto Duckmaloi Road. Just before the town of Oberon, turn left onto Titania Road, and then left onto Edith Road, which will take you all the way to Jenolan Caves. This picturesque country detour will add approximately 30 minutes to your trip. For more details, see Getting Here. We also suggest accessing Google Maps, other navigation applications and checking Live Traffic in case of further delays.


When you arrive at Jenolan, via Edith Road, the escort vehicle will take you to our carparks. After parking, you can walk down the path to caves and hotel from either carpark. It is a lovely walk from the upper carpark, although it is steep with some stairs. Or you can use our shuttle bus service from the upper carpark.
