Jersey Cave boasts incredible cave formations 1.5 million years in the making. Cleopatra's Needle – a 4 metre column that reaches the ceiling, rare displays of black and grey flowstones, and forests of stalactites and stalagmites, are just a few highlights of this 1.5 hour guided tour.

One of the ancient limestone caves in northern Kosciuszko National Park, Jersey Cave's magical interior and setting make it popular with photographers, families, and visitors throughout the year. 

Above ground, the rugged karst landscape is a great backdrop for Yarrangobilly's walks, lookouts and outdoor Thermal Pool. Stay a few days at Caves House or Lyrebird Cottage so you can see it all.
