Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What to Expect
Make your own way to Jenolan Caves, located three hours by car from Sydney Airport. Meet your guide at 1pm in the Guides Office to begin your caving experience.

Get outfitted in the gear provided, which includes overalls, helmet, and headlamp. Please come prepared with 'active wear' clothing that allows for full movement and can get dirty. Sturdy non-slip footwear is essential.

Start in the Elder Cave, which is perfect for novice cavers to get accustomed to being underground. Move on through other sections with colorful names including the Crystal Chamber, The Chapel, Armchair Squeeze, Rockpile, and Letterbox Squeeze. The S-Bend takes you out to the Imperial Cave, where you emerge from your adventure. Receive a Certificate of Achievement at the end of your tour.
