Jenolan Caves

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, please arrive 45 minutes before your first activity. Before setting out for Jenolan, always check the Live Traffic website.

Jenolan Caves Road is closed. Please use Edith Road. Edith Road is sealed, but is steep, winding and narrow, with several tight hairpin bends, unsuitable for ANY vehicle longer than a 12-seat minivan. 

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:

  • Turn off the Great Western Highway at Hartley onto Jenolan Caves Road. But then there is a detour. Remember to turn onto Duckmaloi Road, then Titania Road and, finally, Edith Road - a very pretty drive which adds about 40 minutes. See map.
  • 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, your vaccination certificate, 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. As we are still under Covid-19 restrictions, you must wear a mask in the shuttle bus. See our Covid-Safe plans.

Coffee & Gift Pop-up

While you wait for our shuttle bus, feel free to grab our local and delicious Fish River Roasters coffee at our coffee pop-up. Or why not check out our pop-up gift store and some interesting Jenolan history while you are there too.
