Jenolan Caves

Cave Tours Only

We have reopened 5 of our spectacular caves: the Temple of Baal, Orient, Chifley, Lucas and Imperial. Our other caves are still closed, for now. For COVID-19 safety, we can guide a very limited number of guests through these caves at one time - making them very exclusive experiences indeed.

Hot Tip: If you book more than one cave tour on the same day, don't book the second immediately after the first. Give yourself a break of perhaps 30 minutes between tours, and you will have a much better experience. Between tours, you may need to use the restroom, replenish your water supply, have a snack or walk to the meeting point for your next tour. 

We are Releasing Tours and Packages Two Weeks in Advance

Our new tour schedule has been released for March 16 to March 29. To ensure our business remains flexible, and to avoid disappointment for our guests, we are releasing tour dates only two weeks in advance. This will enable us to adapt our operations if need be. If the date you want to tour is not available yet, you can book your accommodation or dining now, and then contact us two weeks out, to lock in your cave tour booking. You can book accommodationbook dinner, book High Tea, book Chisolm's Lunch (Saturdays) or Chisolm's Lunch (Sundays).
