Don’t miss a guided tour through the oldest show cave at Yarrangobilly – Jillabenan Cave is around 2 million years old. This intimate cave gets you up close to impressive displays of delicate straws and shawls, cave coral, stalactites and helictites.

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.

Iconic species - Southern corroboree frog conservation program
