Greetings! There is so much helpful information here already! Recognizing how personal travel is I still would welcome input for which cave option(s) offered by this company would be best. Looking at the weekday timetable for the caves it seems feasible to see two within the time constraints of the tour. (I wish they left earlier, to be at Jenolan upon opening, but at least for now, not...)
Is there a better option, from Katoomba, without a car, than this company? I will have arrived via train from Sydney the previous day, hopefully by mid-morning so I can use the HOHO bus for sightseeing for 3 Sisters, Scenic World, etc.
I should mention it will be late July, the middle of winter. Do these tours, at that time of year, need to be reserved far ahead? Depending on the weather, I could hike instead?
Your opinion: I love seeing unique geology but am not fond at all of being underground. I go if there is something I must see (i.e. cave paintings in France) but not for the lights or special effects/music and definitely not plug holes!! Would you go in the caves or to Wentworth, if you have done both, and which cave(s) from their list of 3, or why you wouldn't go?!
