Getting Here

Driving to Jenolan

Please note that if you are booked to stay here on a  Friday night, you cannot access our valley before 4:30pm.

When planning your trip to Jenolan, you must arrive 45 minutes before your first activity. Before setting out for Jenolan, always check the Live Traffic website.

Even if you have previously been to Jenolan Caves, or are familiar with the area, please note the detours below, to ensure you’re able to successfully navigate to Jenolan, to experience Australia’s most spectacular caves, iconic dining and historic accommodation, all set in the Blue Mountains World Heritage wilderness.


If travelling from Canberra, the fastest way is via Goulburn, Taralga and Oberon. At Oberon, choose Edith Road. See map.

If driving from Sydney, there are several routes:

  • From the Great Western Highway, turn left onto Jenolan Caves Road. To avoid road closures that exist further along this road, turn right onto Duckmaloi Road. Just before the town of Oberon, turn left onto Titania Road, and then left onto Edith Road, which will take you all the way to Jenolan Caves. This picturesque country detour will add approximately 30 minutes to your trip. For more details, see Getting Here. We also suggest accessing Google Maps, other navigation applications and checking Live Traffic in case of further delays.

  • If you are confident on rural roads, for a longer drive through countryside, turn off the Great Western Highway at Magpie Hollow Road, South Bowenfels (just before Lithgow). Drive to Tarana and then on to Oberon. At Oberon, choose Edith Road. See map.
     
  • For a much longer drive, on major roads, drive to Bathurst. Just before Bathurst, turn onto Littlebourne Street which takes you through O'Connell and then on to Oberon. At Oberon, choose Edith Road. See map.

Concierge Service

Once you arrive in our carpark, our concierge service will check your tickets, and will direct you down to the caves and hotel.

Walking Down to the Caves and Hotel

There is a lovely walk (approx. 500m) down to Caves House, for your dining experience, overnight stay and/or your cave tour meet up. The path starts just beyond one of our most photographed formations (Carlotta’s Arch) and there’s a great view of the landscape and Caves House as you walk down.

Complimentary Shuttle Bus Service

If you not wish to walk, or are unable to, don’t worry. We have a regular complimentary shuttle buse service that can take you down the hill, and back up again to your car.
