Lucas Cave Imperial Cave at Jenolan Caves - easy guided tour Chifley Cave tour at Jenolan Caves


Colossal Caverns. This mighty cave was the first to be discovered at Jenolan, in 1860. Your journey starts with a 300 stair step ascent. Then, feel dwarfed by the sheer scale of our highest and widest chambers. In the 'Cathedral', the music and lighting showcases massive formations. Feel like singing? Warm up your vocal cords in the famous acoustics. Stand in awe, in the beauty of the 'Procenium' and 'Mafeking' chambers. 


Our easiest cave tour. Follow the path of an ancient river bed. Mostly level, with short sets of stairs - an excellent choice if you're perhaps not quite as mobile as you once were. This ancient cave tells amazing stories. See the perfect 'Lot's Wife', the lovely Shawl Cave and the awesome ‘Crystal Cities’. 


Variety and surprises! As you move deeper, this ancient cave reveals its unique beauty – huge caverns, narrow passages, a wealth of stories, fossils and crystal in every form, from the rich ‘Lucinda Chamber’ to the bizarre ‘Wall of Noses’. See our most exquisite spar crystal. An outstanding experience for all ages.

Some of the most beautiful crystal you will ever see. Follow the mostly-level ancient river bed beyond the amazing sights of the Imperial Cave. Ascend to the delicate Diamond Branch, lined with pure white crystal, tinted with every shade of pink. Your journey culminates at the ‘Gem of the West’, an astonishing crystal cascade. 


Seeing is believing! The visual impact takes your breath away. Each chamber seems richer than the one before. Warm up your vocal cords in the echoes of the Persian Chamber. This ancient cave is famous for the ‘Pillar of Hercules’ (Jenolan’s tallest stalagmite) and the enchanting ‘Crystal Basin’, which fills, on occasion, with pure water, of palest blue. 

Temple of Baal

Dramatic & Evocative! This ancient cave is renowned for its spectacular features. Marvel at the awesome crystal formations in this citadel of reflection. Explore two huge, awe-inspiring caverns, famous for fossils, helictites, stories, the ominous names of its formations and for our longest crystal shawl, the ethereal ‘Angel’s Wing’.

Legends, Mysteries & Ghosts

Grownups only! You never know where this mystifying journey may take you. Hear strange stories about the inexplicable - not just 'ghost stories', but history and mysteries. We don't have a 'ghost cave'. But strange sounds, sights and experiences have been reported from all our caves over the years. Not for young children or the faint-hearted.

Off the Track 

Time Travel. Don a helmet and headlamp, and explore long-abandoned, dark pathways. It's one of our most fascinating tours. You never know where this journey might take you. You might go to caves with names like 'Architects Studio', 'The Shambles', 'The Jersey', 'Lily of the Valley' and the 'Red and White Temples'.
