Our Caves Remain Temporarily Closed

We reopened Caves House hotel and Chisolm’s Restaurant in early June, for pre-booked guests. However, our cave tours currently remain closed due to the COVID-19 restrictions. We are continuing to monitor advice from the NSW Government’s Chief Medical Officer and NSW Health, with regard to safely reopening the cave tours. We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience during this time, while we continue to prioritise the health and safety of our staff and visitors.

Blue Lake Restoration Project - Important Works, Requiring Temporary Road Closure, During Daylight Hours from Monday, 13 July, 2020

Starting on Monday, 13 July 2020, we will start work to restore the Blue Lake to its former pristine condition, which was significantly impacted by the damaging floods in February. The project is being funded by Infrastructure NSW’s Restart NSW Fund.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these critical works, which are likely to take between three to five weeks to complete. The works require Jenolan Caves Road (also known as the Five Mile) to be closed between 6 AM to 6 PM, Monday to Saturday (inclusive) from the intersection with Duckmaloi Road through to the Grand Arch in the Jenolan Caves precinct.

Up-to-date information on the road’s closure will be available on the Live Traffic NSW website. We will provide further updates during the project.

Unfortunately, the Blue Lake and River Walks and pedestrian access to the Grand Arch will also be closed.

Desilting the Blue Lake has many benefits, most importantly to protect and improve the habitat for our local population of platypus, as well as to enable the upgrade of the iconic Blue Lake Boardwalk, which is planned for early to mid-2021.

Alternative Road Access Via Edith Road from Oberon

Alternative access to Jenolan Caves is via Edith Road from Oberon (also known as the Two Mile Road). Unfortunately, coaches and buses greater than 12-seat capacity are unable to use this road to reach Jenolan Caves. Please check road conditions prior to travel. The Live Traffic NSW website provides up-to-date information on road conditions, which are especially important during the winter season.

There is plenty to do above-ground in our World Heritage precinct, from the charm of Caves House hotel to the chance to see some of Australia’s most iconic or rare wildlife in their natural habitat. As of June 30, we do not yet have a tour-reopening date. However, you can still purchase tour gift vouchers online now. They are valid for 3 years.
