The spectacular Jenolan Caves are a 3 hour drive from Sydney Airport.  The caves are situated on the western edge of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.  Remember that in Australia, you must travel long distances to get to the really good stuff, so please give yourself plenty of time to drive the steep, narrow, winding mountains roads to Jenolan Caves. Meet our guides at 1:00 p.m., in our Guides Office at Jenolan Caves. 

Wear 'active wear' - clothing that can get dirty and which allows full movement.  Sturdy, non-slip footwear is essential.  We fit you out in overalls, helmet and headlamp.  then your journey begins.  This is a genuine adventure experience. Our guides are all highly qualified, mentoring you, the novice caver, all the way.

The 'Elder Cave' is perfect for first time cavers! As your confidence grows, the squeezes get longer. Look carefully, and you'll see some fine crystal, but this tour is not about cave decorations. It is an adventure experience!

Move on through the 'Crystal Chamber' and take time for a breather in 'The Chapel'. The 'Armchair Squeeze' leads you into the fun of the 'Rockpile', then the aptly named 'Letterbox Squeeze'. This adventure is called 'The Plughole' for good reason. The 'S-Bend' is the way out of the cave! Tired and dirty, you emerge into the Imperial Cave, where others will notice your new swagger of confidence.  

Later, you can proudly show friends your Certificate of Achievement.  

Adventure caving is not just a fun and physical activity. Some find it life changing. It engages your mind and your imagination and leaves you wanting to do more advanced caving!
