Our FREE app helps you learn as you walk.

Learn about the many surprising engineering feats that have enabled people to experience the caves. It seems appropriate to use the latest technology to learn about Jenolan's technological history.

Enjoying Nature

If you cannot download our app, you can still really enjoy this shady bush track. 

This track starts from the Grand Arch, and leads you alongside the Blue Lake, home of our resident platypus. Follow the Jenolan River downstream.

This very pleasant walk retraces Jenolan's technological interactions with water, wanders by waterfalls and over several bridges, including a suspension bridge.

At the hydro-electricity station, turn back and return to the Grand Arch, along the same path.

Please note that the path includes many stairs. The return trip is uphill.
