Get there early to beat the crowds. Don't rush as the road in is slow, narrow, and winding. I did the river cave which was something else. The whole valley with cave drive through entry, European chalets, and the bush is a must visit. Blue...More
Drove in from medlow bath for a visit. The Lucas cave was the next tour so we took it. Our guide was terrific, knowledgeable but casual not sure of his name. We have seen caves around the world and this was the best we have...More

The caves are well worth a visit. We toured the stunning Orient cave on the 1st day, stayed the night in a family room (very comfortable), had dinner in the Jenolan House restaurant (outstanding lamb shanks & desserts to die for) & toured the popular...More
This is a must do on your activity list if visiting Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. It's a long windy drive from Canberra and a shorter drive from Katoomba, which is quite scenic. The tours are run often and professionally. The caves are expansive and...More
We enjoyed the caves & opted for the 1 hr Imperial cave tour, which is the least strenuous one. Better posted information about tour pricing would be helpful as the board is a little dated & confusing. We were lucky to be in a small...More
Very happy with the Lucas Cave tour. We had 2 children with us aged 9 and 10 who both had no problem completing this tour and both found it very enjoyable.
My partner also enjoyed the tour having never been to anything similar before he...More

The New South Wales Train website has a lot of information for trip planning. I recommend getting an Opal card. They are sold at most convenience/petrol stores and can be topped up there as well. They make getting around Australia via public transportation very easy. Check out transportnsw.
As the other reviewer commented, I also recommend going straight to the Jenolan Caves website for prices and cave choices.
Blue Mountains Trolley Tours runs a bus from Katoomba to the caves. They are the only company that provides this service, so if you do not have a car, you should check out their website.
Note that booking the actual cave tour along with the transport is an option through Trolley Tours. I recommend this as they will work out the cave tour times to be compatible with the tour bus departure times.
Hope you enjoy your time, it is a beautiful area.

Hi Ella Dael
Tough question, depends what you want to get out of the caves. Unlike other cave formations, Jenolan is a number of different caves and because of the various conditions the formations in them are quite different. My choice would be as follows.
1, River Cave. Climb down the stairs to deep underground and see the river and steep stairs back out. Along the way their is spectacular crystal, veils and stal/stags.
2. imperial Diamond .Some beautiful crystal formations and not so strenuous.
3 Lucas Cave. Big Chambers least claustrophobic (if that is an issue) Some very large stal/stags.
4. Orient. Big Caverns/chambers with lots of decorations some crystal
5. Chifley Cave. Not as spectacular as the others but features a lot of history from early settlement of the area.
You really want to try and spend a day there and do two tours. One in the morning one in the afternoon.
I suggest you go to the cave website. The descriptions are fairly accurate. Unfortunately you cant post website address's in Trip Advisor
