What travellers are saying
- I’ve been coming to Jenolan Caves since I was a child and each time, the experience has been completely different. This visit, I brought my teens for their first visit.
The devastation of the 2019 fires and subsequent flood events has altered the landscape surrounding the caves. The entry is now via Edith Road and the last few kms are one way with an escort vehicle then shuttle, which was made the drive in much better. The caves themselves are as magnificent as ever. Visitor numbers are limited due to the issues mentioned above and COVID but the wait to start our tour was so much more peaceful without the buses and huge crowds. Our guide Geoff was extremely knowledgeable and kept everyone entertained throughout. The Orient has a number of stairs and narrow passages but we went at an easy pace with plenty of photographic opportunities along the way. I’m not going to go into too much detail on the cave itself so as not to give away too many spoilers, but suffice to say….wow. It does not disappoint! Jenolan Caves are still one of natures greatest works of art.Written 1 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Somewhat out of the way, the Lookout within Kanangra-Boyd national park, is pretty well at the end of the road, and it is a grand and scenic drive to get here by way of 27km of unsealed road of mostly good quality gravel.
From the car park it is a 500-600m walk to the lookout from which the views are simply stunning. There are a range of longer walks also available from this location.
Well worth the effort to go here.Written 26 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The Blue Lake is apparently the bluest it has been in years. Unfortunately the River Walk is currently closed due to the aftermath of the recent bushfires. The lake needed to be dredged and the path is currently subject to rock falls. Remediation work is currently underway.Written 30 January 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Jenolan caves, the world's oldest caves - one of the most outstanding cave systems in the world in the Blue mountains. There are 9 spectacular caves, with pure underground rivers and astonishing limestone formations.Written 7 June 2019
- This was a great experience, but could have been so much better. If the tour guides had have followed their own guidelines, they would have avoided the only disappointing part of the tour. This is meant to be an adventure tour, but because these two people, who were quite obviously not up to it and came totally unprepared as per the information sheet, were permitted to come, we were held up so much, and these two people took up so much of our guides time, that we inevitably spent so much of our time waiting instead of adventuring. So much of a money grab. One of them said he couldn't go any further after only 15 minutes! Hopefully, if you choose to do this activity, you wont be subjected to this. But nonetheless, potentially could be even more awesome than it was for me. I feel quite cheated after how much I paid and how much I travelled to do this activity. Shame on the tour group.Written 3 May 2015
