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.

  • It's quite a long drive and the road there is a bit tight but worth it. Our guide Graeme was great. We went on two tours and the second one was a lot more enjoyable since it was a small group. Unfortunately, some of the things he pointed out were seen from a narrow pathway, so the ones at the end of the line couldn't see or hear what he said.
  • I have been here twice and the caves are still amazing. Huge caves with lots of features in them to see. Very good walking paths with modern handrails. The lighting in the caves is spectacular to look at. Be sure to book ahead and, if possible, get a tour early in the morning as it can get quite busy later on a parking spaces are rare. Don't drive here with a large camper van as the Jenolan Caves road is very steep and​ narrow.
  • We went on the lucas cave tour and had an amazing time. The caves themselves are amazing but what really made the whole day was our tour guide Emma. She had a passion for her job and made sure she included everyone in the tour. The caves were good today but the guides make this place.
  • Lovely experience with will informed guided tours. There are many different walks you can do and the friendly staff at the front will guide through your options. What an amazing experience.?
  • This is my second visit to Jenolan Caves. The most magnificent cave which are lime rocks here is Lucas cave which has history of almost 300 million years and the way they are preserving and maintaining the attraction deserves special mention the music deserves special mention
