Jenolan Caves Fossil Hunters Plughole Adventure Experience at Jenolan Caves

The Grand Tour

This experience, through 2 of our most spectacular caves, is not for the faint of heart! Start in the dazzling Orient Cave. Ascend into breath-taking Persia, then down, down, into exotic India and Egypt, passed the enchanting Crystal Basin. Descend deeper, into the black depths of the Mud Tunnels. Then up again, until the ‘Temple of Baal’ cave opens above, where the crystal wings of angels hold back the powers of ancient pagan gods! No sacrifices today, on those stony altars! Press on, through the long, steep dragon’s throat, as it twists up, and out into daylight at last! Phew! What an amazing journey!

Fossil Hunters 

School holidays bring underground fun for kids. Little adventurers get kitted with caving helmets and real head lamps, before braving the Lucas Cave, in this interactive experience. They learn about fossils and all things caves, with hands-on experiments and treasure hunt. Kids leave with a little something to take home! All guides hold a Working with Children Check, so Mum or Dad can either join in, or relax at the café, for some kid-free time, knowing their little ones are in safe hands.

Tuesdays to Thursdays during NSW school holidays, age 5-12, 1.5 hrs
