Admittedly, the caves are a long drive from Katoomba but they are certainly worth it. We did the Lucas cave with Scotty as our guide and it was amazing to see, plus he kept it very light hearted and fun all of the way through....More

The whole family with kids aged 17-8 really enjoyed this cave and also the surrounding area with the blue lake and enormous lizards and (allegedly) platypus. The scent of eucalyptus vegetation was amazing. We saw the Imperial Diamond cave. It is a very high and...More

Jenolan Caves is a wonderful place with so much to see and do. I would recommend staying a night or two at historic Caves House. We did a cave tour,went bushwalking, saw platypus in the wild. A great place to unwind.

We visited the temple and it was ok. Lots of steps so a level of fitness required. Some in our tour struggled. The guide was good. Took about 1.30 hr . Crystals interesting. Diamond cave is better. Pricey though.
