Jenolan Caves

Chifley's Secret Chambers

In a world made easier by modern convenience, take the time to experience the genteel pleasures of a bygone era. Spend time experiencing what the modern tour bypasses, to see how new technology brings the past back within our reach.

Chifley's Secret Chambers is a tour steeped in history.  

This is our most exclusive tour - only a handful of visitors at a time.  Wearing a helmet and headlamp, you explore the Kings Tableland, the original entrance to the Chifley and Imperial caves.  Once in the Chifley Cave, you see the historic Architect's Studio and a long hidden chamber, The Shambles.  

Throughout the tour, the history of electricity and technology at Jenolan is explored, before moving to another secluded secret, the Wilkinson's Branch.  

In time honoured fashion, the beguiling beauty of the cave is revealed to those who wish to listen to its mysteries.

Note that on this tour, as well as these long-abandoned chambers, you experience the entire Chifley Cave, with it's variety, surprises and quirky history - very special!

Note: On arrival at Jenolan, please first come to the Guides Office, so we can prepare you for the tour, with helmet and head light.
