The Blue Mountains are home to many geological wonders, one of which are the Jenolan Caves, an ancient marvel carved into the mountains.

Traversing 40km of aeons-old passages, the Jenolan Caves are not only an incredible natural wonder, but are also steeped in Indigenous history, being an important place for the Gundungurra and Wiradjuri peoples.

There are two main tours that will take you through the caves, allowing you to experience this incredible natural system, its Silurian marine fossils and glistening calcite formations!

These awesome tours include:
