Jenolan Caves

The Lucas Cave

Massive Caverns!

Large groups can easily view the massive chambers of the 'Lucas'  - our most visited cave.  This spectacular cave includes the most photographed limestone formation at Jenolan, 'The Broken Column' and displays a wide range of huge cave formations.

If you have time to visit only one cave, the Lucas is one of our most amazing, offering variety, our highest and widest caverns plus a glimpse of the pure underground river.

Tour size: average 60 people (minimum 2)
Stair steps: 910 (including 252 stair steps into the Cathedral Chamber)
Fitness level:


Visitors walk several flights of stairs to gain access to the Lucas cave.  But once inside, the walk becomes less strenuous.  There are many rest stops where you can enjoy fantastic sights. If you have mobility difficulties, we recommend you view one of our easier caves.

The Lucas Cave's highest chamber, 'The Cathedral' (54 metres high), is often used as a unique wedding venue. This awesome chamber is reputed to have the best acoustics of any performance space in the world. Therefore, we often use it for musical concerts and theatre. Please see our 'What's On' page.


Why not stay overnight! Make sure you book accommodation early. Stay at least one night, to experience more activities, both above and below ground. Don't forget to try our magnificent Chisolm's Restaurant
