If it’s too cold or hot outside, a cave tour's a great choice, though it’s worth taking a jacket as temperatures are around 13˚C underground.
After your tour, walk to the Thermal Pool for a relaxing soak in the 27˚C mineral waters, or visit one of Yarrangobilly’s other beautiful caves. A short walk up the road from Jillabenan Cave carpark, Bluff lookout offers panoramic views of the Yarrangobilly Valley and Caves House.
