Closed parks: Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve closed
Road access into Jenolan Caves (from both directions) is closed from 5pm Friday 19 March 2021 for the foreseeable future due to flood damage. As a result, Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve is closed until at least Monday 10 May 2021.
The closed areas include:
- The Jenolan Caves business precinct
- The cafe and accommodation business
- Access via the 2 and 5 Mile Roads are closed due to landform instability and land sumps
- All walking tracks in the location are also damaged as a result of flood damage.
Jenolan Caves offers complete booking flexibility, and our staff can organise a voucher valid for up to three years or provide a refund for any cancellations for experiences that have been pre-paid.
NPWS staff are in the process of contacting affected guests but if you require assistance, please call 02 6359 3900 or email the bookings team for accommodation and dining related enquires.
For cave tour related enquires, you can call 02 6359 3923 or email reception.
This closure extension is required to give Transport for NSW time to finalise risk assessment works of 2 Mile Road (Oberon side access road into Jenolan). It's also required to determine a long-term recovery and access plan for the Hampton Bend and 5 Mile Road (Sydney side access road into Jenolan), which will take considerably longer to repair.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact the local NPWS office on 02 6336 6200.
