Jenolan Caves

Australia's Most Spectacular Caves

Due to Road Closures, accessing Jenolan has changed, if 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.    

Top Tips:

  1. You must arrive in our carpark 45 minutes before the start of your first booked activity.
  2. If you book more than one cave tour on the same day, give yourself a break of perhaps 30 minutes between tours, and you will have a much better experience.
