Regarded as Australia's most outstanding cave system, Jenolan Caves is the oldest cave system in the world, and forms part of the Greater Blue Mountains Area World Heritage Property.
The main attraction is the vast network of caves with their amazing limestone formations and pure underground rivers. Book a guided tour to explore the caves. There are also some caves that you can walk through on your own.
Make the most of your visit and stay at the heritage-listed Caves House hotel. You can also book a leisurely lunch or a delicious dinner at Chisholm’s restaurant, or a decadent high tea. Any of these treats can be combined with a guided tour of one of our spectacular caves if you book in advance. For a more casual visit, enjoy the spacious cafe, which offers light lunch, drinks and snacks.
The reserve offers wonderful opportunities for bird watching and wildlife spotting. You might catch a glimpse of a brush-tailed rock wallaby, eastern water dragon, or a platypus. Enjoy the reserve's scenic walking tracks, all leaving from historic Caves House. Take the McKeown Valley walk upstream from Devils Coach House.
