Planning a romantic moment - maybe a marriage proposal? Got a super special occasion coming up? Or looking for an experience with a difference? By prior arrangement, and 2 week's notice, we can take you on a private guided journey of any one of our caves, even those not currently on our tour schedule. Arrange a private tour for just yourself, or share with a select group of family and friends. So many experiences from which to choose, each different! Prices on enquiry.

 

Important:

  1. Traffic Control / 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 carpark. Then, you can catch our free shuttle bus, 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) *** 1 HOUR AND 15 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR FIRST BOOKED ACTIVITY.*** Escort vehicles leave our car park every 20 minutes, to accompany vehicles back up the hill. 
     
  2. Accessing Jenolan Has Changed - 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.

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. 
     
  3. 30 Minutes Between Tours - 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.
