Long ago, the Blue Mountains lay beneath the ocean. Then, like the Great Barrier Reef of today, tiny creatures called Coral Polyps, built marine cities of coral. Thousands of years later, massive earth movements lifted these reefs high into the air to form the Blue Mountains. Further movements compressed and heated the coral into limestone.

As rains seeped through cracks in the earth, they dissolved the limestone. Underground streams and rivers gouged out great caverns in the rock. As the rains eased, the streams finally slowed to mere drips, and the limestone solution began to crystallise into strange, beautiful milk-white formations. Where iron was mixed in the formations they grew in pinks, oranges and browns. Thus Jenolan Caves was created.

Regarded as Australia’s most outstanding cave system ­ with 11 spectacular show caves, pure underground rivers and amazing formations, Jenolan Caves is among the finest and oldest cave systems in the world.

Award-winning Jenolan Caves is open every day, for underground activities to suit every age and fitness level.

There are guided show cave tours, challenging adventure tours, night tours (including ‘Legends, Mysteries & Ghosts’) children’s tours (in NSW school holidays), scenic bushwalks and underground concerts. You can easily spend several days at Jenolan.

Jenolan Caves House is a popular venue for weddings, honeymoons, concerts, corporate retreats and school excursions. It offers meals and a range of accommodation for all needs and budgets.

Caves House also features the award-winning Chisolm’s Restaurant, the traditional grand dining room.
