Find out what's open and what's closed at Jenolan.

Our hotel and historic Chisolm's Restaurant are open for pre-booked guests. Our Caves Cafe and 3 of our beautiful bushwalks are open.  However, our cave tours are still closed, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are continuing to monitor advice from the NSW Government Chief Medical Officer and NSW Health, with regard to safely reopening the cave tours.  We greatly appreciate your patience, while we continue to prioritise the health and safety of our staff and visitors.

Blue Lake Restoration Project - Check for Periodic Road Closure

We have started work to restore the Blue Lake to its former pristine condition, which was significantly impacted by February's damaging floods. While the work is being done, drivers can use Edith Road, as Jenolan Caves Road will close from time to time. See Live Traffic NSW

At Jenolan, our Blue Lake Walk, River Walk and 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. If you have any comments, concerns or wish to find out more about the Blue Lake Restoration Project, please email

Use Edith Road

While this work is being done, Jenolan Caves Road may close from time to time. So before coming to Jenolan, it is very important to check Live Traffic NSW website.  You can still get to Jenolan by detouring onto Duckmaloi Road, Titania Road and Edith Road. This easy detour will add approximately 40 minutes to your trip. Coaches and buses greater than 12-seat capacity cannot use Edith Road. 

We offer complete booking flexibility.  For further information, please call us on 1300 76 33 11.
