We paid to have a guided tour of Wombeyan Caves but were not told that there would be ladders to climb down (quite a few). As I have a fear of heights, I could not enter the cave. The tour guide was lovely and gave...More

We camped in a tent at the campground, The kids loved it, as the kangaroos and possums would come right up to our tents at night time. Caves themselves are a great experience, and outside there are toilets, showers, bbqs, and lots of grasses area...More

The caves themselves and the drive from Mittagong are dramatic and beautiful, but the destination is appallingly neglected. Management needs to take a hard look at the visitor experience it provides - the information, facilities and grounds are truly third-world standard... The cabins are grotty,...More

The caves are breath taking! The self guided tour is easy and child friendly. The Wollondilly is at an intermediate fitness level with over 500 stairs down and up. It is worth it and suitable for ages 5 and up.

We were there last week and it was very dry. The best swimming spot at the moment is probably the Wollondilly River Nature Reserve.
