Lucas Cave
 
Large groups can easily view the massive chambers of the 'Lucas' - our most visited cave. This spectacular cave includes the most photographed limestone formation at Jenolan, 'The Broken Column' and displays a wide range of huge cave formations. If you have time to visit only one cave, the Lucas is one of our most amazing, offering variety, our highest and widest Craters plus a glimpse of the pure underground river. Lucas Cave Jenolan Caves Inspection time: 1½ hours Length: 860 metres Stair steps: 910 (including 252 stair steps into the Cathedral Chamber)  Fitness level: average

River Cave
This long and exciting cave tour rewards you with a sense of personal achievement. Its many astonishing features make the effort worth while. It offers something to amaze everyone. It features the underground ‘River Styx’ which appears as pools of blue water, including the ‘Pool of Reflections’. This is a deep, illuminated underground lake, whose almost motionless surface produces spectacular reflections. You will see the huge 'Queen Esther's Chamber', magnificent shawls, such as the ‘Giant Shawl’, and many famous formations, including the ‘Minaret’ (a spectacular stalagmite), ‘Grand Column’ (biggest column at Jenolan) and the ‘Queen's Canopy’. In 2010, the River Cave tour was revitalized using the latest lighting technology, enabling you to see the cave formations as they have never been seen before. The environmentally friendly lighting system uses less electricity and minimizes heat output, conserving the sensitive cave environment. This tour includes 2 high, steep steel ladders. Please wear appropriate shoes and clothing. The Minaret, River Cave, Jenolan Caves Stair steps: 1298 Minimum age: 6 years Length: 1271 meters Inspection time: 2 hours Fitness level: strenuous

Orient Cave
The Orient Cave is gorgeous! The visual impact of its huge and richly decorated chambers will astonish you. In 2008, the Orient was upgraded using the latest lighting technology, enabling you to see them as they have never been seen before. The environmentally friendly lighting system uses minimal power and minimises heat output, conserving the sensitive cave environment. The Orient Cave is more spectacular than ever, and better protected for future generations to enjoy. Inspection time: 1½ hours Length: 470 meters Fitness level: average ; Stair steps: 358

Temple of Baal Cave
The Temple of Baal Cave is renowned for its beauty and spectacular features. Although this cave is often used as a wedding venue, it is not a ‘temple’. Rather, the unusual name was inspired by limestone formations which reminded early cave explorers of the Biblical story of ‘Elijah and the Prophets of Baal’. Visitors enter the Temple of Baal Cave via the ‘Binoomea Cut’ a long manmade tunnel. Then, they travel down the ‘Dragon’s Throat’, via a dramatic winding staircase. There are 2 massive chambers, one 42 metres high and filled with beautiful formations. One of these formations, the 9 metre tall ‘Angel's Wing’ shawl, is one of the largest cave shawls in the world. The cave also offers beautiful examples of crystal helictites. This cave tour includes evocative light and sound, taking you back in time, to the creation and discovery of the cave. 360 degree view of the Temple of Baal Cave (Use your arrow keys to see the whole chamber.) Inspection time: 1½ hours Length: 365 meters Fitness level: average Minimum age: 10 years Stair steps: 288

Chiefly Cave
The Chifley cave is full of variety and surprises, featuring large chambers, many richly decorated. The Chifley displays all the stunning limestone formations for which Jenolan is famous, including exquisite examples of 'spar' crystal. One of our shorter cave tours, the Chifley is a marvel for all ages. As this tour does not retrace its path, you always wonder what is around the corner. The Chifley has a fascinating history, and was the first cave in the world to be lit with electric light, as early as 1880. Two of its amazing grottoes are illuminated with coloured lights, a reminder of its unusual heritage - children find these fascinating. Inspection time: 1 hour Stair steps: 421 Length: 690 meters Fitness level: average
