Well worth the visit to Jenolan Caves to experience the wonderful limestone formations underground. We chose the tours with the least people and/or the longest ones. Saw some beautiful stalagmites, stalactites, waves, columns etc - quite mind boggling to think of the time needed for...More

Spent 1:30 hours in Imperial Diamond tour but it only felt like 30 minutes. Thanks to our guide Scottie, so knowledgeable and humorous.

Caves House at Jenolan has colloquially had a reputation as a bit of a “Fawlty Towers experience”. While there is certainly NOT a demonic proprietor, it IS the case that Caves House manages to get most things just not quite right. Coincidentally, we heard a...More
