Dated to 340 million years, Jenolan Caves represent the oldest known cave system on Earth. The site's main attractions are ten caves filled with ancient limestone formations. You can drop by for a short tour, lasting only a couple of hours and visiting only one cave, or arrange to stay for an entire week and explore all ten caves currently open to the public. A variety of educational and inexpensive family-oriented tours are available on a daily basis.  Frequent underground concerts by Australia's notable performers are held in several caves. You can also choose to undertake a series of nature walks through the rugged mountain bush, all of which are clearly marked and free of charge.

  • I think in the remarks in Japan, if you are not fluent in English and not greatly change in comments here. Japan, Gao staff and Director commentary guide is easy to understand and this cave to show as interesting as possible, getting tired. I think we should have thick Hoodie one piece much so cool inside.

  • We drove from Sydney to the caves and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It was a quiet day(according to the staff member in the ticket office) so we had the choice of a couple of different tours- ...  read more »
  • Every time I've been to Jenolan I've managed to squeeze in 6 caves in 2 days. If you know what you are doing, and no how to keep away from the tourist that have no idea what they are doing, seeing the...  read more »
  • Love the caves! Unfortunately the hotel and the only "restaurant" and fast food are really gross. Would recommend bringing your own food. It is a shame that such a beautiful building and location bring the place down instead of bettering the experience of the caves. ...if you are a reader don't say you had not been warned: BYO food mate, this is no joke.
  • We are staying here right now. Did a cave tour this afternoon and ate at the restaurant tonight. The cave tour was great, and the food at the restaurant was very good with fast friendly service. The hotel rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable, and priced accordingly. I would highly recommend this as a fun overnight.
  • Great tourist spot. Tour guides were very helpful, funny and friendly. The caves are amazing. Please bring jackets as it can get very cold. Browse their website to see the tour schedules prior coming so that you won't miss on a great tour.
  • Caves are amazing. Great tours with very knowledgeable and experienced staff. Restaurant etc not so much. It felt cheap and nasty. There's a car park further up the hill with a bbq, toilets and showers for free.
  • Mountain cottages on the katoomba side 30 years old, decrepit, old torn uncomfortable (some outdoor) furniture, not fully self contained (sleeps six had four dinner plates, missing can opener and other utensils) seriously poor condition pots and pans. Beds really uncomfortable and dirty. Stripped bed to place my own foam mattress on top to find blood (and other unknown) stained mattress protector (clearly not bleached). Doors to underneath the cottage hanging off so the kangaroos sleep under there and make noise during the night. Gas hot water line freezes when its too cold. Bathroom door didnt close properly let alone lock. The hot food in the bistro/cafe was average though the cold food was decent. Not one of the full soap dispensers in the ladies public toilets next to the ticket office worked. I do have to say that the playground at the cottages was actually really amazing. HOWEVER, the adventure cave tour was great and the guides were just amazing and the caves are very nice.
