Day-Breakers Guided Wildlife & Nature Walk

Are you nuts about nature?  Wild about wallabies?  Is your mantra 'early to bed, early to rise'? Perfect!

Our overnight guests are eligible to book this new guided activity - the Day Breakers Wildlife Walk

If you have not yet booked a relaxing dinner, bed and breakfast getaway with us already, at the world's oldest cave system, in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, what are you waiting for?  Click here to book accommodation!

The Day-Breakers Wildlife Walk

The morning after you arrive, at 7:15am, before breakfast, meet your guide and other participants, in Caves House foyer. 

We will take you on an eye-opening journey above ground, in the cool of a Blue Mountains morning. 

You never know what you might spot. Jenolan has been a wildlife reserve for 100 years, so you might see rare (and adorable) brush-tailed rock wallabies in the wild. You might hear a lyrebird showing off its eclectic repertoire!

Bring your camera. Wear non-slip shoes, hat, sun-glasses but come prepared for possible drizzle.

Return to Caves House in time for breakfast and chat with Anne and other participants.  What a relaxing getaway - available only in February and March!  

Wildlife Sanctuary since 1920

For generations, Jenolan has been famous for Australia's most spectacular caves, delicious food and wine and overnight stays in charming surrounds.  But it is not so well known that Jenolan has been a wildlife sanctuary for over a century.

The surrounding Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve teems with wildlife, mostly active in the early morning, before day visitors arrive for cave tours. 

So now, for February and March only, Jenolan is offering this new guided above-ground wildlife experience, exclusive for overnight guests.

How to Pre-Book and Pay

The Day-Breakers Wildlife Walk must be booked and pre-paid separate from your accommodation booking. You can't book Day-Breakers online, but you have 2 ways - either book and pay in our Gift Shop, when you check into Caves House, or by phone before you arrive (as long as you have already booked accommodation). The cost is similar to an Orient cave tour, and includes a snack to tide you over until breakfast.

One last thing - this activity requires stillness, observation, listening and patience, so any child must be at least 6 years old.
