Please note
  • Visitors are requested to leave the cave by 4.15pm.
  • The cave is accessed by a token-operated door, a short walk from the visitor centre.
  • The ground in the cave can be slippery, so please take care.
  • It's a good idea to take a jumper with you because the temperature is cooler inside the cave.

Be inspired by your journey through this magnificent show cave. You can set your own pace on a self-guided tour. Pause as often as you like to take in the awesome cave formations that surround you the entire way.

The carefully placed lighting means you won’t miss a thing – look out for stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, cave coral and other beautiful cave decorations. The cool cave air will make you feel like you’ve stepped into another world, and the information you’ll discover along the way means you’ll leave a cave expert.

The tour finishes with a stroll through the magnificent Victoria Arch. This colourful daylit cavern is one of the largest chambers at Wombeyan Caves. Look out for rare rock formations that resemble the tails of crayfish as you pass through the final chamber of Fig Tree Cave.
